Charting Christmas

The Charting Christmas documentary looks at the history and traditions of Christmas. Have you ever wondered things like: How did the good Bishop Saint Nicholas become Santa Claus? Why do we have Christmas trees and Nativity plays? Where do Christmas Carols come from? And the big one: Why do we celebrate Christmas on the 25th of December?

By looking back through time, we discover amazing details about this joyful holiday. Find out the origins of Christmas traditions and legends, from Charles Dickens to Saint Boniface and Saint Francis of Assisi. Explore promises of the Bible with eminent Bible scholars as they uncover historical and biblical accounts of the birth of Christ, as well as the prophecies concerning the coming of the messiah.

We interview historians and biblical scholars who bring the history of Christmas to light. This documentary brings us great historical scenery from Israel and the United Kingdom. Join us as we chart our way through the history of Christmas.
