When you turn on your radio in December or walk into any store, you can't help but hear Christmas music playing loudly over the speakers. After all, it's the BEST TIME OF THE YEAR...right? Well, it hasn't always been thought of in that way across the globe.
In fact, when you start paying closer attention to some of these Christmas songs we all know so well...hidden within them are little clues to the SPOOKY traditions of Christmas past...
In this episode, our hosts WOODY BROWN & TYLER BENCE take you across the world to explore the traditions of cultures for this time of year that predate Christianity, and why being "naughty or nice" meant a lot more than getting presents or a lump of coal...
So...sit back, make sure your hot chocolate is nice and hot, grab a blanket and maybe even something to defend yourself with and let's jump into the SPOOKY SIDE OF CHRISTMAS!
Thank you for listening and as always: BE RAD
