Tales of Takoma

Just in time for the holiday season, Hollywood is offering Charles Dickens as "The Man Who Invented Christmas." His story of Scrooge, however, was only one of many forces that created our modern Christmas. Washington Irving first introduced New Yorkers and the world to "Sinterklass." The poem best known as "The Night Before Christmas" and Thomas Nast's illustrations of a jolly, red-suited elf cemented the image of Santa, sleigh and reindeer in the minds of all children.

When the federal government declared December 25 a national holiday in 1870 and technology enabled everyone to participate (uh, shop), we were on our way to the Christmas extravaganza that now dominates this month. Check out the fuller story here.
