America Celebrates Feb 19, 2017 On this special edition of America: Facts vs. Fiction, we put the spotlight on amusement parks and world's fairs to separate fiction from truth. And explore the myths of two of our favorite holidays, Christmas and New Year's Eve. We remember Coney Island as the site for the nation's first roller coaster – but a wild ride in Pennsylvania rightfully takes the prize. We all know that Walt Disney built his second theme park in Orlando, Florida – but few remember that he nearly built it in St. Louis. And world's fairs have always been geared for families, right? Then why did so many feature nudity? And learn how the Santa we cherish is actually the product of three New Yorkers and how the Times Square Ball drop is based on a bygone system of standardizing time.
