Will change the way you celebrate this glorious holiday! Dec 2, 2007
A tremendous collection of Christmas poems, quotes, songs, traditions, recipes, and stories. It has changed the way we celebrate and helped us understand better why we celebrate. I can't recommend it highly enough. If we could only choose one Christmas book to own, this would probably be it.

Christmas is almost everyone's favorite time of the year. It certainly is mine. There are so many traditions assoicated with Christmas that most of us do not know where these traditions originated. This book tells us the origin of many of these.
St. Nicholas was actually a fourth century pastor who had a great love for children. He desired to make their lives better. This is where the tradition of Santa Claus began.
The book also includes some favorite recipes and the history behind some of our Christmas carols. I found all of this information to be quite interesing. Jeanetta Bearden Pollard author of "Mrs. Claus Shares Stories From the Heart."
