Christmas Unwrapped: The History of Christmas originally appeared on the history channel back in 1997. Narrated by Harry Smith, this documentary traces the roots of Christmas back to its early beginnings as a pagan Roman holiday of feasting through the relatively new introductions of christmas trees and candy canes.
For those of you celebrating Christmas today, Merry Christmas to you and yours.
