    1. The fact after fact style of writing makes the book very interesting to read, but ultimately proves a limitation. Subjects from Christmas trees to Santa Claus suits are covered in some detail and with a Canadian focus. It combines to give you a history of modern Christmas celebrations, and the influence of commerce on how we now observe this "religious" event. Perhaps the Canadian slant is the book's most endearing quality as it is a fascinating window into Canada's past. How we recognize Christ [...]


    2. This was pretty interesting. Although it is centered around Christmas and Canada, not everything is completely Christmas or Canadian. There some chapters were related to Christmas solely through tradition, such as dolls and turkey. It also included a bit of history from America, Britain and a bit of Germany.Although I’m keeping it for now though, I’m not sure if I’ll ever read it again. It has little interesting facts, but I’m not sure if it’s actually interesting enough to read it aga [...]


    3. I just finished this book. Late, I know, but life has a way of getting in the way.This is a gem of a book if you like the histpry of hw traditions and cultural events started and how they were influenced by other cultures.Who invented Christmas cards? How was fake snow produced? Wh started the Santa Claus Parades? This book is filled with research and stories.A fun book with short, concise chapters.


    4. Lovely charming seasonal celebration that is full of the most fascinating McCormackian tidbits of Christmas memorabiliaDec 2013 - wonderfully quirky but with a lively sense of humour that is delightful - especially fun is that McCormick uses the opening of the little windows of an advent calendar as the frame for his book so that we have our own treats to discover in every chapter!


    5. I love the tragic, fragile kitsch this book commemorates. Seth's illustration style is ideally suited to McCormack's topic and his quiet narrative voice.
