When it comes to Christmas, most of us think "Jesus is the reason for the season." But before there was Christmas, Saturnalia was the holiday of choice for Roman pagans. Filled with riotous parties and scurrilous winter solstice rituals, we’ll recount how early Christians culturally appropriated the holiday season for the ages. Hosted by singer-songwriter Jill Sobule, join us for an evening of yuletide melodies, pagan history, and Christmas magic to explore the ghosts of Christmas Past and Future.

Featuring: Jill Sobule Summer Minerva Claudia Valentina (and band)
