Corner Morning Show: Kenneth C. Davis 12-23-09

The Don’t Know Much series by Ken Davis began 20 years ago with a book that looked at how much American’s history education was lacking. The series now has other volumes that explore American’s knowledge gaps on geography, space, dinosaurs, and more.

Davis recently joined Brad Savage on 106.1 The Corner to discuss the myths, legends, and true history behind the common Holiday traditions today. The pair cover mistletoe, Santa Claus and his reindeer, the 12 Days of Christmas, the abbreviation “Xmas” and more.
