Highlights include Christmas Landscape by Laurie Lee, Christmas Shopping by Louis MacNeice, Journey Back to Christmas by Gwen Dunn, My Christmas : Mum's Christmas by Sarah Forsyth, Christmas by John Betjeman and In the Workhouse by George R Sims.
The illustrations are absolutely brilliant and are by a range of artists and embellish and complement this book with colour and black and white illustrations. They have a wide range of hues, and include iridescent views of snowy scenes as well as black images of a snowy night when a warm fireside urgently beckons.
I would suggest it is a book to pass down in a family.
I am still giving this five though, as I am sure others would like the ones that I don't go for personally. Also there is a gem from Robert Finch that shows that even back when this book was first produced in 1983, the dead hand of Cultural Marxism was casting its obnoxious spell on the Festive Season. Keeping the Christmas Traditions going may well be a key to getting through this dark age to the other side - after all, it is all about the Birth, and I have an intuition that Christmas is an essential element in the resurrection of Goodness.
