This is another book for the December mini-challenge that has passed already. But I will post the reviews anyways.
I really enjoyed the book and I was surprised by how much I learned as a result of reading it.
The author discusses the beginnings of Christmas. I had no idea that Lunenburg County in Nova Scotia is the Christmas Tree Capital of the world.
The author discusses the Canadian traditions of Christmas such as what we eat, do, and the reason for the season which is the birth of Christ.
The author also talks about how people celebrated Christmas hundreds of years ago. they also decorated, and cooked and baked as we all do.
Santa Claus is a relatively new invention and the Santa Claus parade in Toronto is the largest in Canada.
Lastly, the author discusses Hanukkah and Ukrainian Christmas. I just love the decorations and other things included.
All in all this book is loaded with new facts and information that will surprise many readers.
The book ends with a few recipes and a quiz. I just loved the book!
