Without a doubt, Christmas is the most spellbinding time of the year; however, do we ever wonder where did all the traditions that we keep until nowadays come from? For instance, when did we start singing carols and decorate the Christmas tree; why do we hang socks over the fireplace, and how did Santa Claus get his red suit and his eight-reindeer sleigh? Obviously, all contemporary customs hide old and diverse stories behind them; related to different origins including profit and commercialization of Christmas. Even though traditions and holidays are never static, we all cherish the moments we share with our beloved ones during this holiday in the middle of the winter. 

Join TF Samita and Najwat to find answers and enjoy the most celebrated part of the year over documentary of the month titled " The real story of Christmas" (45 minutes). Dinner will be provided.
