When was Christmas first celebrated? How did December 25 become its date? How did the Bible's 'magi from the east' become three kings named Melchior, Caspar and Balthasar who rode camels from three different continents to venerate the newborn Christ? The author answers such questions in this concise account on the origins of Christmas.
