Season of Light traces the history and development of many of the world's December holiday customs, all of which involve lighting up the winter season. Season of Light also recounts the historical religious and cultural rituals practiced during the time of winter solstice - not only Christian and Jewish, but also Celtic, Nordic, Roman, Irish, Mexican, and Hopi. It also takes a look at some of our more light-hearted seasonal traditions.
