ABOUT THE BOOK
Like heirloom ornaments on a splendid tree, It’s All About Christmas will put you and your family in a festive frame of mind for a glorious holiday season. Stuffed with stories, songs, poems, Christmas history, joyful traditions, recipes, and activities, this delightful book celebrates all things Christmas—from the sacred story of the Nativity to the lore of Saint Nick. Opening this book is like tearing the paper off a much-anticipated gift, offering new surprises with each turn of the page. Generously illustrated with scores of vibrant vintage images, It’s All About Christmas will remind you of Christmases past, help you appreciate Christmas present, and guide you to creating memories for the Christmases to come.
It's All About Christmas carries with it a nostalgic feel that reminds me of Christmas's past. The collection of short stories, recipes, songs, poems, and classic pictures and paintings offers up reminders of the joys of Christmas. I recognized many of the songs and stories but found it wonderful to have them all collected here in one place. The stories include "The Gift of the Magi", "The Little Match Girl", and "The Animals Christmas Tree." Each song includes the lyrics and a bit about the history of the song. The recipes sound delicious. This book is a great resource for those, like myself, who enjoy putting together a Christmas Eve program (a collection of scriptures telling the story of the birth of Jesus is the first selection in the book). While it would have been helpful to have the actual music included with the songs, that's a minor thing since these songs would be easy to find elsewhere.
