Where did Christmas come from?

Is it rooted in prophesy or paganism?

And why did it take centuries for most Christians to agree on a date for Jesus’ birth?

Dr. Robert Stovold explores the myths and legends around a December festival that dates back to earliest times, investigating the origins of Christmas trees, the divine child and the virgin birth – and finding some surprising connections.
