I love this book. It is not the Christmas Carol/Night Before Christmas/ Twelve Best-Loved Carols Collection, but a thoughtful, joyful selection of stories that reveal the best about a living Christmas in modern Britain.

Most appropriate for young adults and adults.

I think the book was very interesting. It contained many stories that occurred on the eve of Christmas, on Christmas etc.,. The book was nice. I will recommend it to all my friends.
