The Monster Guys Podcast: Episode 009: Christmas & Yule Traditions
Show Notes & Summary:
As we continue in this Jolly ‘Ol Season of Yore …
Ever wonder why we hang stockings on the mantle? Why do we kiss under the mistletoe (and should we really be doing that)? What about the cookies and milk we leave out for Santa on Christmas Eve? Wassailing? Caroling? Reindeer names?
1st century Druids? Odin? Sleipnir? Loki? Baldar? St. Nicolas? Frigg? Grandmother Cults? Christianity? Paganism? Paradise Trees?
What do all these, and more, have to do with some of our most cherished holiday traditions?
Well, The Monster Guys are here to help! 😉 Join us as we ask Why? When? and Did You Know? -type questions.
Here is the post for the Lovecraftian Carols we mentioned: “Christmas … ahem … Carols For Your Sanity. Hehe!”
