Christmas Lectures

This three-part celebration of Christmas starts with the man many think is the author of the modern celebration, Charles Dickens, looks at how Santa Claus has become big business in Finland through the power of marketing, and culminates in a musical celebration of the year the Christmas Carol went viral: 1928.
