What do you get when you cross Leslie Knope's wedding dress, with a whole bunch of books and a Christmas tree? [Hint: It's pink and part mannequin.]
Christmas traditions have changed over the years. In the Middle Ages, Christmas celebrations were rowdy and raucous, apparently lot like today’s Mardi Gras. From 1659 to 1681, Christmas was even outlawed in Boston. (Puritans were not fans of the celebration.) Christmas traditions themselves also changed over time, many finding their roots in ancient Pagan rituals.
