Amazon.com Review

Following their previous success (The Conversation Piece) Bret Nicholaus and Paul Lowrie suggest 300 Christmas-themed questions designed to bring any gathering back to the core purposes of the holiday: love, reflection, and merriment. The Christmas Conversation Piece is based on the belief that the right questions can spark understanding, humor, and connection between friends and loved ones. Try them out when entertaining, mingling at the office Christmas party, or simply having dinner with your family. Here's a sample: "What is your favorite Christmas scent?"; "What's your all-time biggest Christmas shopping disaster?"; "What is the most unusual Christmas tradition you ever heard of?"; "What has been the greatest blessing in your life since last Christmas?"

From the Inside Flap

What one Christmas tradition would you never want to give up?

If you could spend Christmas anywhere in the world, where would you most want to be?

If you could have visited the Christ child just as the Three Kings did, what would you have brought as a gift?  

You've been chosen to host a sensational Christmas celebration on TV: What three guests would you choose to make it the best Christmas special ever?  

The Christmas Conversation Piece offers these and many other questions to pose and ponder during a season of both deep reflection and unabashed merriment.  This charming volume--the perfect stocking stuffer--will provide you, your family, and your friends with twelve days of surprising and amusing Yuletide questions.  Who would you most like to meet under the mistletoe?  Your answer just may change by Christmas Eve!

As a lover of Christmas and all things holiday, I cant recommend this book enough. It is ideal as a coffe table book that can be opened onto any page in no particular order, with questions that can be read at random or one after the other--which usually happens becuase the questions are so much fun. Its delightful to hear friends and family pull from thier memories, their traditions, perceptions, and beliefs about christmas, while you share your own. It is bound to leave you with a happy feeling, and an anticipation for the holiday. This small book accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do--It is a wonderful converstaion piece and I highly recommend it.

This is a such a great book for parties, small gatherings and family get-to-togethers. It adds meaning to chatter around a table or sitting by the fire. It gives a great easy alternative to watching meaningless TV just to fill in the blank spaces, even with a couple in the evening. It's non-threatening but gives the opportunity for meaningful communication about what Christmas means to you and others.

I found this book on my mom's coffee table and couldn't put it down. I would say I drove my family crazy, asking one question after another, but they enjoyed it as much as I did!
This book asks questions ranging from silly to serious - and though many of the questions don't ask you to explain your answers, invariably, explanations are offered. It really is a great "conversation piece."

We get this book out every Christmas and share our answers. Sometimes our answers change from year to year so we can continue to use the book for years to come and continue learning about one another, friends, family, children. In fact, I have had people request to borrow it for church lock ins and other family events.

and its really not just for Christmas time. I have grabbed this little volume many times and modified the questions for non-holiday (and also without solely using the 'Christmas' word out of respect for people outside my belief system.
I have used it in parties where I type the questions onto strips of paper and pass around a basket with each person pulling a question and then answering it... it never fails to get people thinking, creating connections with one another and otherwise seeing the holiday in a different light.
I have also used the questions to guide my own inquiry... especially when I (for whatever reason) don't have the desire to ask my own questions...for a busy entrepreneurial writer Mom, sometimes I take all the help I can, even if it means employing a simple book in the process!
Enjoy this one, refer to it regularly.
