In addition to 30 stories written by missionaries from around the world and collected by the editor, there is also a section that explores Christmas traditions around the world, the origins of the way we celebrate Christmas--our gift giving, pageants, Christmas music, Santa Claus, Christmas trees, Advent wreath traditions, Christmas cards, mistletoe, holly, the Wassail bowl and the Yule log. Useful for for Sunday schools, for reading aloud to children and as Christmas gifts for the young reader, this book is a perfect resource to keep in the Christmas library.
