Every December 25, Christians throughout the world join together in celebration of Christ's birth. But where do these various Christmas traditions come from? Why, for instance, is the holiday marked by the giving and receiving of gifts? And who came up with the idea of a Christmas tree?

In this special presentation from THE HISTORY CHANNEL, take an enchanting journey through the past of one of the world's most recognized holidays. Trace the emergence of the modern-day Christmas celebration from pagan festivals such as the Roman Saturnalia, and learn how British settlers in the New World transformed the patron saint of children into the enduring figure of Santa Claus.

These fascinating mysteries-and many more-are revealed in CHRISTMAS UNWRAPPED: THE HISTORY OF CHRISTMAS.
