Secret Symbolism of Christmas with William Federer

by
When you think of Christmas, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? For some people, it’s gifts. For others, it’s a tree, decorations, lights… Many people think of meeting up with family and friends. But at it’s core, Christmas began as a very religious holiday. Even though, that’s a fact most Americans don’t like to admit. In a recent Pew Research poll, less than 50 percent of Americans still consider Christmas to be a religious holiday. Another 86 percent admitted they will go above and beyond to splurge, buying expensive gifts for their loved ones. It raises a few interesting questions about the way Americans view Christmas, and all of the traditions that come along with it. Today, we’re taking a closer look at the secret symbolism of Christmas. Joining us, to remind us of the history behind the meaning of Christmas and the legend of Saint Nicholas, is Bill Federer, historian, best-selling author and host of the daily radio show, “American Minute.”
