It's All About Christmas
Like heirloom ornaments on a splendid tree, It’s All About Christmas will put you and your family in a festive frame of mind for a glorious holiday season. Stuffed with stories, songs, poems, Christmas history, joyful traditions, recipes, and activities, this delightful book celebrates all things Christmas—from the sacred story of the Nativity to the lore of Saint Nick. Opening this book is like tearing the paper off a much–anticipated gift, offering new surprises with each turn of the page. Generously illustrated with scores of vibrant vintage images, It’s All About Christmas will remind you of Christmases past, help you appreciate Christmas present, and guide you to creating memories for the Christmases to come.
It's All About Christmas is packed full of Christmas treasures that can help keep the Spirit of Christmas in your home. It includes everything from Christmas stories, to recipes, from songs to symbolism. I particularly enjoyed the trivia sprinkled throughout the book. It was also enjoyable learning the backgrounds to familiar Christmas Carols.
The vintage pictures are a great reminder of a time when Christmas wasn't so commercialized-when there was more focus on the true meaning of Christmas and spending time with those we love.
This book includes something for everyone, and I can see this easily becoming part of family Christmas traditions.
