Nothing makes for a cozier Christmas evening than snuggling in front of the fire (festive lights twinkling, mulled wine at hand) and reading of the grisly murder of a 1930s socialite. Or so says fashion historian and YouTube presenter Prof. Amanda Hallay, whose Holiday Special on her Ultimate Fashion History channel for 2020 is “Christmas with Agatha Christie: The Ultimate Guide”.  Inspired by Dame Agatha’s childhood, her books and stories set over the holidays, and the movie and TV adaptations with a festive feel, Prof. Hallay offers up Christie-themed recipes, gift ideas, fashion, viewing recommendations, etc,.all of it drawn from Christie’s life and her characters. Whether you’ll be celebrating with your loved ones or spending the holidays alone (as Hercule Poirot so longed to do, but never seemed able to, such was the British murder rate over the holidays!), Hallay gives some great tips on how to Christie-up your Christmas.

Here's the episode (Christmas with Agatha Christie: The Ultimate Guide), and wishing you all the happiest of holidays.
