(No reviews yet) Write a Review

How did Christmas become today's bulging stocking of goodies? In this delightful sleigh ride through Christmas history, Paul Kerensa answers the festive questions you never thought to ask... Did Cromwell help shape the mince pie? Was St Nicholas the first to use an automatic door? Which classic Christmas crooners were inspired by a Hollywood heatwave? And did King Herod really have a wife called Doris? Whether you mull on wine or enjoy the biggest turkey, the biggest tree or the biggest credit card bill, unwrap your story through our twelve dates of Christmas past. From Roman revelry to singing Bing, via Santa, Scrooge and a snoozing saviour, this timeless tale is perfect trivia fodder for the Christmas dinner table.


AUTHOR: Paul Kerensa is a British Comedy Award-winning writer and comedian, with credits including Miranda, Not Going Out and Top Gear. He's written several books, including So a Comedian Walks Into a Church and is a regular on BBC Radio 2's Pause For Thought.
