InfoBlast #1 | Christmas

For this first episode of InfoBlast, Nick teaches Rob all about Christmas–religious origins, the tree, Santa… even Krampus shows up. Come with us for a trip that starts well before you think it does, pushes up to the Protestant Reformation of Europe, and even has critical changes to its mythology throughout the 18-1900s in its slow change from not-really-celebrated religious holiday to commercialized, capitalistic, secular wonder! Keep an ear out for the end, when Nick’s grandpa, Santa himself, makes an appearance!
