Episodes Notes

A Christmas quiz at an office Christmas party changed the research path for one historian.

Dr. Gerry Bowler, a historian at the University of Manitoba, spent 10 years researching his first book, The Encylopedia of Christmas and that journey has continued for 20 more years and three more books. 

Why do we celebrate Christmas on December 25? Who are the Wise Men? Who was Saint Nicholas?

Today on Connections, Dr. Gerry Bowler or Mr. Christmas will answer those questions and many others.
