A slim little volume which discusses briefly (and somewhat selectively) the history of Christmas traditions including Santa Claus/Saint Nicholas/Father Christmas, gift-giving, Christmas trees, and candles/light. Not particularly rigorous and the author's biases are plain, but a pleasant read which serves fairly nicely to introduce one to or remind one of the traditions behind some of our traditions. Lovely reproduced illustrations in red and white, too. ( )
