Christmas essays, poetry, plays, narrative sketches and short stories. There's a religious section,- the Nativity according to the Gospels of St. Matthew and St. Luke, and imaginative adaptations on Mary, Joseph, the three Magi, Jesus the child. The Santa Claus legend; a Negro skit by Roark Bradford, a Gliel Bradford psychograph. Henry Van Dyke's fanciful account of the origin of the Christmas tree. And of course Dicken's Christmas Carol, and parts of Pickick Papers. The last section is wholly American- and the whole is edited for a general American public, with a blend of the traditional with the new. Useful holiday reference material for story tellers.
