When I was a kid, I was obsessed with all of the books from the Enchanted World Series, but this one was definitely one of my favorites. I recently decided to re-read it because I came down with a severe case of Christmas spirit. It's been many years since I've even glanced at this book, so reading it again made me very nostalgic indeed. Also, now that I'm older, I can appreciate (and understand!) the text much more.

My review for all of these books in this series is the same.

Time-Life has once again done an outstanding job putting together a series. From cover to cover they are thoughtful, beautiful books. I'm starting to sound generic, but it's true.

This is one of the classic books from the The enchanted World series from Time Life Books. I really enjoyed this book that brings to light the origins of Christmas traditions and legends including much of the winter holidays celebrated in the past.

It's probably long out of print, part of their series The Enchanted World (the only volume of said series that I still own).

This beautifully illustrated book is a lovely blend of fact and fiction, of the folklore surrounding the festive time of Winter.
A series of short articles and stories.
