Salt Lake City, UT – Let's face it, 2000 years ago there was no such thing as Black Friday, inflatable lawn snow globes or even a Santa Claus. Whatever Christmas traditions - good and bad - have developed, the celebration is very different from its origins. In a new book, the scholars John Dominic Crossan and Marcus Borg strip away the sentimentality for a look at what the story means in the context of both the first and the twenty-first century. Crossan joins Doug Wednesday to talk about "The First Christmas."
