KIRKUS REVIEW

Small, standardized red and green figures break up Jupo's scanty, hit-or-miss text, which recapitulates how old beliefs (mistletoe as protection) survive in present custom, how peasants ""took a break"" and celebrated on Christmas day, how the tree was first brought indoors in Germany and gifts exchanged in Rome, and how the different versions of Santa Claus operate in different countries. This, that, and the other--in a grab-bag geared to the last-minute holiday scramble.
