Let's Celebrate: Christmas

Let’s Celebrate: A Holiday Origins Podcast

Dec 23 2023 • 49 mins

In this episode I am celebrating the biggest, most popular holiday in America, It’s the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas! We’re going to look at the history of how it became a holiday and how people celebrate today as well as the history behind some of the most popular Christmas traditions. I also discuss the spirit of Christmas and why people believe there is magic during this time of year. Is it just Hollywood hoopla or is there something else behind the idea?

The CeLibation for this episode is Buttered Rum CeLibation!

To make this CeLibation you need:

  • 2 tsp of maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 splash pure vanilla extract

  • 1 dash ground cinnamon

  • 1 dash ground nutmeg

  • 1 dash ground allspice

  • 2 ounces rum, a dark rum is traditional but I really enjoy Rum Haven’s coconut rum in this CeLibation as well.

  • 4 ounces hot water

  • Cinnamon stick, for garnish

  • (Listen to episode for full recipe)
