An educational and brief history of the modern Santa

(CBS) - C.G.P. Grey, a person we have come to love for his explanations of just about everything under the sun, has come out with a new video tackling a very timely - one might even say seasonal - topic: Santa Claus!

We've previously had C.G.P. Grey here on The Feed explaining everything from continents to pennies to daylight savings time and more. His latest video on how our modern version of Santa Claus came about is another fascinating and educational adventure that really makes learning fun and has earned itself a triple-rainbow salute from all of us here at The Feed!
