The Simplicity Show Ep. 36: End of Year Spectacular - Part Two

Welcome back for Part Two of the Podcast we didn’t want to end.

We did (finally) get to the point and lay out the origins (comical, mythical, and dark) of some of the holiday traditions we know and love. Want to learn about kissing under the mistletoe, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, and even the Christmas Pickle?

Pour yourself some holiday spirit and tune in now to hear learn a little, laugh a little, but mostly scratch your head in wonder at how we ended up celebrating the way we do.
