About the book
With CHRISTMAS in the title, many might believe this to be a book for children. Certainly, some pages could be — with mention of the colorful Yuletide traditions that have captivated young ones for generations.
But this book goes beyond nursery rhyme for a deeper look at quintessential Yuletide folklore.
Explore the origins of the iconic candy cane; the basis of cherished traditions like ornaments, Christmas cards, and hanging stockings; and the stories behind influential classics such as “Yes Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus”. Featuring tongue-in-cheek hints and historical facts, this book delves into the ceremony, kitsch, and klatsch of Christmas, with extraordinary stories and poems prompting the need for tissues … and it even comes with a Yule Log recipe!
