This Christmas, the Natural History Museum's Darwin Centre Live is holding free discussions on the science behind some of the themes of Christmas.

You can join scientists and learn about the Mayan and Aztec history of chocolate and about the cacao plant's amazing medical properties.

Scientists will reveal the Met Office's tricks of the trade when predicting a white Christmas.

You can also find out what we really know about the much-loved robin and why Frankincense and Myrrh made such good gifts. 

Darwin Centre Live gives visitors the opportunity to meet and question the Museum's natural history experts. The events are also videoed live on the website.

The Christmas events are free and will take place in the Museum's Darwin Centre between the 19 and 23 December.
