3 stars for the very young or the very nostalgic.

Some stories are more entertaining than others. And interspersed throughout, there is an ongoing story of a family celebrating Christmas and working out how all the old Christmas traditions came about.

In typical Enid Blyton style, the good children get rewarded, the bad get their comeuppance and are redeemed. She definitely believed in karma!

Good stories! I like the alternating between chapters of the main story interspersed with other short stories. Quite enjoyed the grown up voices but no so much the children's :-/

This is a book of twenty-six charming chapters. It has a coherent narrative in eleven of the chapters which are about the same family celebrating Christmas. The children (Ann, Peter, Susan and Benny) ask questions about English Christmas customs, which get answered by their parents. As well as this there are fifteen short stories all about something Christmassy. These chapters are interspersed with the ones which feature the family. The tales are sometimes moralistic, as you’d expect from Enid ...more

Great little kids book. I was supposed to read this book with my seven year old daughter but I got sick and she read it by herself. She was raving so much about it I had to read it as well :).

My daughter preferred the short stories and I liked the big family christmas stories and the lessons learnt from mum and dad. We will probably get this out again in a year or so and read it again at christmastime.

Loved it! And learnt a lot about Christmas traditions such as the origins of the Yule Log (derived from the Nordic Jul-Vatter apparently) and Boxing Day (philanthropy delivered on St Stephen's Day - 26th is also the feast day of St John who is NOT Mary Magdalene the Evangelist). Nostalgia, albeit cleaned up and now apparently politically correct nostalgia, at its best. Great stuff.
