Beginning with the Biblical accounts of the Holy birth, Christmas Treasures related the meaning of Christmas in tales of faith, love, gladness of heart, good cheer, and frivolity. Assembled here are many of the best-loved stories, poems, carols, and reminiscences that are, for many of us, as essential to preparing for the holidays as unwrapping the tree-top angel. Opening the pages of this book is like unwrapping a favourite Christmas gift again and again. Christmas Treasures is a gift in itself, evoking fond memories of Christmases past, and perhaps inspiring family traditions for many Christmases that are yet to come.
Comes with Illustrated slipcase box.
