12 Days of Yule: Day Ten

My family likes Christmas specials and movies. Well, my mom does. We watch all of them. Most of them are usually about Santa and family, but some of the “informational” specials, like a History of Macy’s or whatever have some religious tones that don’t even mention Paganism.

BUT! We watched a special on Food Network, the show Good Eats had a great special. The host talked endlessly about how it was not a Christian holiday. He was very much ignoring the Christian adoption of the holiday and focused on Saturnalia and Yule.

It was a really nice surprise to be honest. I love it when we get little goodies like this. Hopefully more people will realize the history of the holiday season now.
