Everything Christmas Blog Tour
Everything Christmas brings all the best ideas for the holiday season together in one volume. In this book, you'll find your favorite classic Christmas stories and a few new ones destined to join them. You'll discover the most delectable holiday recipes, enjoy the words to treasured hymns and carols, and be encouraged by inspirational Christmas poems and the joy of the Nativity.
Organized by the days of Advent, Everything Christmas includes everything you need to make the holiday bright. From decoration ideas to Christmas trivia and humor - it's all here!
This book does have it all. The stories included show the true meaning of Christmas. Words to favorite Christmas carols, along with some carols I've never heard of, had me singing in my head (if not out loud). There are crafts to do with kids and some you can do by yourself. It even has gift ideas for grandparents, the love of your life, and the top ten favorites for him, her, boys and girls. One of my favorite things is the different Christmas dinners and traditions observed in different countries. I also liked the trivia about Christmas traditions: how they got started and how they may (or may have not) changed over the centuries and continents. There are also all kinds of recipes to try. Scripture is used all throughout, pointing our thoughts back to the real Meaning of Christmas - the birth of Jesus Christ.
Everything Christmas is divided up into twenty-four sections so you can use it as an Advent calendar or as a supplement to what you currently use to count down the days. It has a topical index to help you find what you are looking for. It is an awesome book!!
