Fan Fav: The Pagans, Oliver Cromwell, & Charles Dickens

Pssst…it turns out Christmas is a super pagan holiday. On today’s episode we’re doing a brief overview of the origins of Christmas and how Charles Dickens brought the holiday back after Oliver Cromwell had Christmas canceled. For all those who think there’s a war on Christmas…just be glad Oliver Cromwell’s not still around.

Happy Solstice, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas! I’ll talk to you in the New Year.

This is a rebroadcast from the sunnier days of 2019.

New episodes on Mondays. You can listen on Apple Podcasts/iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Pocket Casts, or Stitcher. Follow on Instagram or Facebook @storicalpodcast
