Book Review: Everything Christmas

I was really hoping that I would miraculously get this book much earlier than I actually did.  However, I got the book only a couple of days before Christmas.  This book is set up to read some for each day of December up until Christmas day.  While I did enjoy the book, I had hoped that it would include the history of some Christmas traditions - such as "where did kissing under the mistletoe come from".  I truly loved learning about many of the great Christmas Carols.  There were stories - some fictional and others non-fiction - that related to Christmas.  Although, many were good stories I was not expecting there to be quite so many.  It also had a section to learn about the customs/traditions used to celebrate Christmas in many other countries which was very interesting and a some recipes for traditional Christmas food.  Hopefully, next year, I can use this book to teach more to my children about how we celebrate Christmas.

The book was provided by Waterbrook Multnomah Press.
