This book is extremely hard to review, especially after I've read so many fiction books this year. This book is a lot of fun to read. I didn't partake in reading the holiday stories, but the other information contained is very interesting and fun to read. There are many little known facts about Christmas contained in this book. For example: Did you know that the first Christmas trees were table top sized? This is a beautifully made book with gold trimmed pages and old fashioned illustrations. ( )
