It's Christmas Eve and all around New Zealand families have Christmas trees up adorned with shinny ornaments, a Christmas pudding prepared for the big feed tomorrow and stockings ready for presents. But have you ever stopped to ask why?
For Christians, Christmas Day is a celebration of the birth of Christ, but there are so many other traditions that go back hundreds of years. We thought today might be a good day to test your knowledge of all things Santa Claus and Christmas. So we are going to do a Christmas version of Mastermind if you will, with a Christmas quiz you can join in. Who better to play our game than the man known as Mr Christmas, James Cooper.
He hosts a popular website called Why Christmas?
