Everything Christmas by David Bordon and Tom Winters




About This Book

Opening this book is like opening a box full of Christmas cheer.

Christmas is a time of celebration and wonder, a time to embrace longstanding traditions and establish new ones. It’s a time for meals made of memories and heartwarming stories shared around the fireplace. It’s a time for worship, reflection, and remembrance of God’s greatest gift.
Everything Christmas brings all the best ideas for the holiday season together in one volume. In this book, you’ll find your favorite classic Christmas stories and a few new ones destined to join them. You’ll discover the most delectable holiday recipes, enjoy the words to treasured hymns and carols, be encouraged by inspirational Christmas poems, and find renewed joy in the Nativity story. From decoration ideas to Christmas trivia and humor – it’s all here!

My Review

Our family, like everyone else, has our special Christmas traditions that we hold dear in our hearts that will be passed on for generations to come. And as such, it doesn’t hurt to add a new tradition when one presents itself.

I received a copy of Everything Christmas to review from and to be honest, I was expecting the a book that has what every other Christmas book of traditions has. But I must say that I was and still am presently surprised with the content in this book! It is beautifully illustrated in old worldly charm, there are stories of old such as The Wooden Shoes of Little Wolfe by Francois Coppee, Christmas In The Heart by Rachel Field and Harry The Singing Angel  by Robert Pengold plus countless others. There are personal stories like Unlikely Places by Cheri Fuller. there are recipes of new and old, Christmas carols of old, crafts, jokes, Santa stats, the history of Christmas, old Christian Christmas hymns and so very much more. Everything Christmas is a treasure trove of heartwarming traditions to add to the traditions of your family that will be loved and passed down for years to come. I highly recommend purchasing Everything Christmas because I guarantee that it will be the first book you take down off the bookshelf the day after Thanksgiving.
