Happy Holidays! We start today with a short story all about how a couple of Dutch provinces had an extremely short holiday season in 1582. Then we take it to the White House to learn some long-standing holiday traditions. We discuss childhood memories and why they’re so … easy to forget. Finally, we answer the question: why do we sing “Auld Lang Syne” on New Years?
