In our latest podcast professor of English Literature Sarah Peverley returns on the podcast to compare what we know about Christmas traditions in the Middle Ages with modern Western festivities.
There are some surprises, like the early origins of Father Christmas or Santa Claus. But what’s not surprising is the degree to which our approach to Christmas has shifted over the millennium and Professor Peverley reflects on what we may have lost along the way.
