KIRKUS REVIEW

Delightful, amusing and also informative, this collection of Christmas lore blends tradition with fact in a potpourri of carols, color and wit. A legendary mixture of pagan origins and Christian significance has provided the days from Christmas Eve to the Epiphany with a host of fables, figures and celebrations. Parties, gifts and ghost stories are represented in original quotes from unlikely and picturesque sources. The authors wished the book to be as lively as a symbolic Christmas tree, and those families who receive this gift will find both knowledge and enjoyment to enhance the Yuletide festivities.
