Christmas time brings us scores of familiar songs. Many of them include references to foods and drinks that we may not really know much about in our modern times. 

We explore the myths surrounding the origins of candy canes, the reason figgy pudding is actually an example of GOOD British food, the wassail drink, and how to make the dreaded fruit cake actually taste good -- and the historic reason why it usually doesn't.

We discuss all of these in our latest episode looking at Christmas foods in Christmas songs!
