Did you realize the phrase “Merry Christmas” was made popular by A Christmas Carol? That the word "Scrooge" and the exclamation "Bah! Humbug!" were entered into the English language as a result of the popularity of this classic? In fact, this book is almost single handedly responsible for the current state of observance of Christmas Day. For in the 17th-century the Puritans pretty much put the kibosh on the idea on having too much fun on Christmas. Registration required and opens November 15th.

Many folks know that our modern-day Santa Claus had his start as St. Nicholas, but what happened on the journey to make us think of a "jolly old elf," rather than a pious Christian Bishop? Where, exactly, did Santa Claus come from, and why does his popularity remain so high in modern American popular culture? This Illustrated Lecture is well-researched, with details on the journey Bishop Nicholas made to become our current-day Santa Claus. It also includes many recognizable images and poems. Mrs. Keyes will be delighting audiences with her wonderful nostalgic presentation on Zoom through Southlake Public Library, December 11th from 6-7 p.m. PLEASE NOTE: Because of secrets revealed, this program is NOT intended for children for whom Santa Claus is a very real figure!
