This book examines the rise and decline of a few specific Christmas traditions. The background is interesting – all the pagan and Christian stuff getting mixed and baked – but the author missed a real chance to dig into the equally interesting aspect of how changing from an agricultural to industrial world completely changed a major day on the calendar.
