This video was about Christmas traditions.

 Christmas started out as an ancient pagan midwinter festival called Saturnalia but now we celebrate the birth of Jesus. A tradition is putting up a Christmas tree this started in Germany in the 16th century by Martin Luther. Another tradition is hanging up stockings it is a legend that Saint Nicholas put coins in stockings of 3 poor sisters whose stockings where hanging on the fire place. I now understand the history of Christmas traditions. I also understand who came up with them or where they originated from. What are the origins of other Christmas traditions?
