Who knew history could be fun?
Back in the day when I was at that University of Iowa my minor was history. I was fascinated with the Tudor period (think War of the Roses, Henry VIII and his numerous wives, as well as Queen Elizabeth I.) Court intrigue! Illicit romances! Religious turmoil! You name it, the Tudors were doing it long before Game of Thrones came along.
As I watched this video I knew I had to share it with you. This is how the people in the Tudor era celebrated the Twelve Nights of Christmas, both rich and poor. It’s amusing, informative, and makes me very glad I live today and not in 1509. Also, Dr. Lucy Worsley is a KICK!
