"Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas." Dale Evans Rogers
"Celebrating the Spirit of Christmas" is everything we love and cherish about Christmas, all wrapped up in a wonderful little gift book. Beautifully illustrated and full of many Christmas treasures, from recipes and hymns to the history of all that is Christmas, this book will be a treasure for many Christmases to come.
Broken into four parts, the book starts out with `The Spirit of Giving,' a chapter devoted to ideas for homemade gifts (with a wonderful recipe for Friendship Tea), ways to give to those less fortunate, as well as stories and poems about the true meaning of giving. This chapter also includes the history of the tradition of Christmas cards.
The second chapter, `Food for Thought,' focuses on the tradition of food at Christmas. Full of recipes (including Classic Sugar Cookies, Cranberry Jelly, and Holiday Fruitcake), the history of the yule cake, and the legend of the Candy Cane, this chapter will have you humming around the kitchen preparing for holiday feasting and festivities. This chapter also includes great ideas around holiday foods, including ideas for gifts, cookie exchanges, and volunteering to feed the homeless.
In `Wonders of Christmas' readers are treated to the history of how Santa Claus came to be, why we kiss under the mistletoe, Christmas around the world, and ideas for discovering your own families Christmas history and ways to celebrate and cherish it.
The book ends with `The True Nature of Christmas' where readers are reminded of the Christmas story, and the reason we celebrate Christmas each year - the birth of Jesus.
Every once in a while we are lucky enough to pick up a book that we instantly cherish and continue to read over and over again. "Celebrating the Spirit of Christmas" is one of those books. From the beautiful illustrations, to the heartwarming stories, poetry, and excerpts, it is truly a gift to be cherished and shared.
