This entire series is a wonderful way to learn history or teach it to adolescents. I find today's generations seem to recall more when they learn through other people (pop songs, celebrity gossip, etc.), so what better way to teach history than through someone else's perspective? Yes, "authentic" diaries would be "better", but would the language really hold the modern student's attention? Did the diary writer know what WOULD be important in the context of history? Probably not.

Warm historical collection of stories featuring a variety of nationalities celebrating Christmas in Canada. Excellent descriptions of family traditions including worship, decorating, meals, and gift exchanging experienced across Canada in earlier eras.

I'm sure if you read all of the original stories for each character this book would have been easier to follow. I was surprised a few errors in the book where I found myself turning the pages back and forth to see if I was missing one because the sentence ended in the middle.
I few cute stories, not all of them concerning Christmas.

My only complaint is that they gave Devorah a Christmas story instead of a Hanukkah one.
