Description

On this episode of Our American Stories, Greg Hangler tells us how in the first half of the 19th century, Christmas was a very different kind of holiday than it is today. By the time Christmas was established as a federal holiday—on June 26, 1870—the ways Americans chose to celebrate Christmas would almost be completely foreign to what we practice today.
