Poems, songs, & stories of Christmas illustrated with paintings by master artists that will fill you to the brim with warm fuzzies! This is perhaps my very favorite. Customs, history, and the scenery of the world in wintery celebration!
Meaning. A reflection of a families personality, spirituality & values. Establishing a sense of stability and shared history. That's what 'Joy' aims to build & strengthen. Tons of ideas for all kinds of seasons.
Ace Collins is famous for his "Stories Behind" books, but this one I adore. I'm a trivia girl, but Ace weaves the trivia into stories that make the trivium memorable. You'll find out about the first live re-enactment of the Nativity with living creatures, the history of holly, mistletoe, the Messiah by Handel, and even why we have a long shopping season! Several of the books above cover long held traditions, but this is most of them rolled into one.
