Laura | 5 comments When I was at primary school I always borrowed a Christmas book from the school library, this would have been around 1993. Even in 1993 I remember it being an older book. The book contained Christmas carol sheet music with lyrics, as well as some stories, and possibly recipes, but can’t be sure of that. It was a general, all things Christmas book. I remember it being a relatively large book, possibly A4 or a touch bigger, and reasonably thick (I’m remembering this as a 7 year old!).

The book was white and on the cover it had a large picture of Santa sitting on a stool, reading a long list of children’s name, in profile. I don’t remember there being any title on the cover. I think about this book often! If I were to guess I’d say it may have been a book from the 70s or 80s.

Laura | 5 comments OMFG YES IT IS!!! I want to cry, I never thought I’d see that book again! I know it seems like an overreaction but I thought one of my first questions to God in heaven would be if he could find me that book! Can’t believe you found it based on my description! Thank you!!!
