Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In this 7 7/8 inch by 7 7/8 inch illustrated 64 page book we have a wonderful collection of Christmas trivia. The History and origins of many Christmas traditions are discussed. Full descriptions and directions for six different Christmas craft projects are given. Three Christmas puzzles/jokes or activities are presented. A recipe for Christmas gingerbread cookies is included. A page is devoted to saying "Merry Christmas" in eight different languages. There is a page listing Christmas Classic Videos to be viewed with your family (only 4). There is also a page listing Christmas Classic books to read with your family (only 4). A bibliography and index are also included in the book. A really great and valuable part of this book appears at the end. There are two pages devoted to what people can do to give everyone a happy Christmas. From volunteering at shelters and church kitchens to participating in food drives to donating a toy to "Toys for Tots" to donating to the Salvation Army to donating to Heifer International, readers get suggestions on how to share the real meaning of Christmas with others.

Did you know that in Greenland there is a traditional Christmas food called "kiviak"? This Christmas treat is made from stuffing auks into a seal skin and burying it in a box for several months. The auks rot into a cheesy substance that supposedly tastes better than it smells. This is just one example of many references to interesting Christmas trivia found in this book.
