How New Yorkers Reinvented Christmas



Christmas, as we know it, was invented in large part in the 19th Century. See where Santa Claus was invented, where the Night Before Christmas was published, the newspapers that popularized Christmas customs in the 19th century, and where "Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus" was written. See the inspiration for the wandering spirits in Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol".
