5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Christmas Book 17 Dec 2013
By MRS T
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I borrowed this little book from the library last Christmas and really enjoyed reading it to my kids who dont really believe in the whole Christian version of the 'big day'. This little book explains a lot of the traditions and stories from this time of year and confirms that some are indeed a ritual dating back to Pagan times. Nice to have and reading it again and again will be a part of my Christmas ritual.
