Item Description...
This unforgettable collection of nostalgic images and entertaining lore celebrates the many ways of commemorating the birth of the Christ child. More than two hundred colorful illustrations, dating from the Victorian age through the early-twentieth century, portray Christmas traditions of years gone by. Nostalgic images of angels, St. Lucia, Yule logs, and wassailing are only some of the treasures selected from the more than thirteen hundred items in the authoris own collection of vintage Christmas books and ephemera. The beautiful artwork, which originally appeared in magazines, newspapers, advertisements, and greeting cards from across the United States and Europe, recalls the wholesome holidays of simpler times. Accompanying these fantastic images is a text full of holiday history. Author and Christmas historian Barbara Hallman Kissinger explores the long-ago origins of the Christian worldis most celebrated holiday, from the Norse tradition of the Yule month to the story of the real St. Nicholas. She also includes the many fascinating variations of gift-giving, tree-decorating, and carol-singing traditions practiced by families across Europe.

christmas past  Dec 13, 2007
I bought this book for my 95 year-old mother-in-law for Chistmas this year. We told her to open it as soon as it was delivered to her so she could get in the Christmas spirit. She told me she is enjoying this book so much! She especially likes the stories of Christmas in other countries and the beautiful illustrations. One of these pictures reminded her of a postcard send to her when she was young. This brought back some fond memories for her. Maybe she'll let me borrow it now!
A keeper  Aug 22, 2007
Wallowing in happy Christmas memories has caused me to start buying books of this nature. Although several times the narrative has been similar in various books, this one stands out not only for the concise text, but the beautiful graphics and selection of images. The country by country detail of traditions was really nice.

I put my little heap of Christmas books beside me, fix a cup of hot cocoa, crank up the air conditioning, and sink happily into a winter wonderland of Christmas in August!
