Synopsis This week on "Learn Me Something," Aaron and Rich celebrate the winter holiday by looking at the history of Christmas.
The first Christmas didn’t start until the 3rd century. Europeans celebrated light and birth in the darkest days of winter. Many peoples rejoiced during the winter solstice, when the worst of the winter was behind them and they could look forward to longer days and extended hours of sunlight.
