this book is a well-written and entertaining account of Christmas customs, both those of pagan and Christian origin. Topics include things like the wassail bowl, mummers, the "Waits" (professional carolers), etc. Includes picturesque color illustrations from Victorian times. This book is well worth reading!
Anna Selby had presented her information concisely and yet, in an entertaining manner, which makes this book a treasure. With a combination of sources, she gives a snapshot of Christmas in the 19th Century that is both touching and concrete. I especially love the inclusion of old recipes.
Very simple read and quite interesting. Short book, that also has recipes and traditions I never heard of before. Seems to be accurate.
Great book. Experience a Victorian Christmas through the pages of this book.
Fun especially if you do a Dickens Faire.
