5 Holiday Histories
December 23, 2015

Merry Christmas history lovers! Things have been crazy lately with my job and my book and getting ready for the holidays and this and that, so I’ve been especially lazy with this blog lately. (What can you expect? It’s right in the title.) But I wanted to do another update before 2016, so I’m going with a quick and easy link roundup of some holiday-themed histories. Enjoy and see you next year!
