TLTP 030 – The Christmas Star That Stole Mince Pies

Welcome to this special Christmas edition of The Last Tuesday Project!

This month we’re doing some festive shorts. Alex wonders what Christmas “borrowed” from other religions, Hayley asks about festive laws, and Jane makes us consider the origins of that fabled star.

Do you like what we do and want to show your support? Well, you can now give us a helping hand via Patreon! Just go to If every listener gave us a dollar a month, we will be able to furnish Tuesday Tower with all sorts of hipster paraphernalia, as well as get Shaun a Hipstermatic 3000 beard trimmer for his birthday. Please donate – he’s in dire need of a trim.

This month’s icon uses “merry christmas” by jerseybarb85 on Flickr, a photo from the Library of Congress. The original is licensed under the Public Domain.

Want to get in touch? We’re on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. Or, you can email us at
