A Medieval Christmas

The Chrismologist's Advent Calendar - Day 13

My children break up for the Christmas holidays today. They have three weeks off, which will be three weeks in which my productivity drops dramatically.

However, at least they don't finish as early as we did when I was a student at Warwick University, and at least their holidays don't last as long as the traditional Medieval Christmas.

Here's Dr Amanda Hopkins, of Warwick University's Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies, to tell us more.... (Do you see what I did there?)

The Medieval Christmas features again and again in my festive publication, What is Myrrh Anyway? Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Christmas, published in the US as Christmas Miscellany.
