Ep 71: Happy Pagan Christmas! (and support Chris's book)

Episode 71 features an interview with Gabi and Petr Michlik about the Christmas traditions they knew growing up in the Czech Republic, traditions with a surprisingly, terrifyingly Pagan bent...where Santa is more of a demon than a jolly old elf. But there's so much more.... Have you ever heard about the Christmas tradition where a carp lives in your bathtub for a week before the 25th of December? Me either.

This conversation is being released to help promote the Kickstarter campaign Chris is putting on to help fund the completion of his new book on the history and traditions of the 12 Days of Christmas.
