This book was not stupendous but it had very good information in it. It would be PERFECT for a homeschooler to use for a Christmas unit study.

“...Christmas isn't about perfection.
What matters is the creation of new memories, centered on a sense of family and being loved, whether you come with a ready-made family or one that you create yourself.

Started around Christmas when I got it for free on the Kindle Fire, it is pretty much as the cover says - the Everything Christmas Book. There are songs, stories, traditions, crafts, recipes and so forth.

I will definitely dig it out again come next holiday season and re-read and use some of the recipes and crafts. It's a nice book to enjoy around the holidays.

Here's a book chockful of Christmas things...I especially liked the classic Christmas stories/poems (including O. Henry's "Gift of a Magi"; Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol"; and Clement Moore's "Twas the Night Before Christmas"), the listing of Christmas movies, and the trivia about Christmas traditions and holiday celebrations around the world.

I read this book on my Nook; I imagine the print edition contains illustrations, which would have made the book even more enjoyable. It's a nice compilation of traditions, stories, songs and recipes for the season. This was a free selection from Barnes and Noble an a nice addition to my online library.

Thank goodness I got this book for free. Who would think a book about Christmas could be so freakin' boring? Very repetitive too, with a lot of nonsense nobody cares about. pffft

This was by fare the worst book ever. There were only a few dialogs and although I tried I could not finish the whole book
I skippet a lot of pages
