90% of americans celebrate christmas one way or another. the holiday began in the first century when church officials chose to honor the birth of jesus, but several customs we've come to associate with christmas come from pagans celebrating the winter solstice. the "don't know much about" series which we love. merry christmas. >> merry christmas to you. it's a pleasure to be here. >> the bible never talks about the date of christ's birth yet we celebrate december 25th.
8:07 am
why? >> primarily because in ancient rome there was a feast called saternalia that celebrated the solstice. what is the solstice? the day that the sun starts coming back, the days start getting longer and most of the traditions that we have that relate to christmas relate to the solstice which was celebrated in ancient rome on december 25th. so when christianity became the official religion, in a sense, in rome, they were able to fix this date which some scholars say may be earlier than that. there's a little discrepancy about it, but no question that the fact that it was celebrated in rome as an important day with gift giving, candlelighting and singing and decorating houses really cemented christmas as december 25th. >> you always say you don't know much according to your book, but do you know why we have a christmas tree as opposed to a
8:08 am
bunch of hydrangeas? >> how about that, ken? >> this is another pagan tradition. so christmas is really about bringing out your inner pagan. [ laughter ] >> who knew we had an inner pagan. >> which of the wise men said that? >> like halloween, these all pre-date christianity, but in the nors e-wore world and scand, the solstice was an important idea, they celebrated the return of life by celebrating an evergreen tree. when christianity came in they started to use the evergreen tree, the pagan symbol as a symbol of the tree of paradise and they started to hang an apple on it. so little red balls on green trees, get it? >> the ornaments. that's where the ornaments came in. >> so all of these things celebrate the fact that light and life are coming back into

the world. >> which is essentially what christmas means to christians around the world? >> and mistletoe? >> we can thankthe druids for that, and mistletoe hung from the sacred oak. you gave them the sign of peace under the mistletoe and they started to hang mistletoe as a symbol of peace and this was such a powerful symbol of paganism and in fact, the real war of christmas in america begins with the puritans around 1869. they knew the date and the traditions were pagan ideas and the puritans banned christmas for 20 years in america before the celebration began just too popular. >> you will be glad to know that all of your answers today are correct. you know a lot. you know a lot kenneth c. davis! >> merry christmas to you,
