This is an absolutely gorgeous book. The book that has the jacket with gold on it is much prettier. There are a plethora of beautiful artwork, vintage images with beautiful colors. Amongst those images are stories, poetry, songs, crafts, Christmas facts and legends, shopping suggestions, stories, suggestions, pictures about trees and trimmings, recipes, gift ideas, the legend of St. Nick, facts and legends about things related to Santa, Suggestions about holiday music, festivals, and events (written in 2003), Suggestions and stories around the "Christmas feast" (dinner), Christmas Eve stuff, a section that focuses more on Jesus and the religious aspect of Christmas, a section on Charity at Christmas time and how to help. All this great stuff to read is wonderful, but the beautiful artwork in the book is the star. It's everywhere.

This book is great! I can hardly put it down. I like it so much I'm ordering one for my MOm and Mom-in-law. It has tons of little stories and tidbits about Christmas that I swear I never knew. I'm a little shy and this gave me tons of cute little "did you knows" for the next cookie swap. Oh by the way, the recipes are goo too! Seriously, buy buy buy:-)
