A Christmas Child

A Christmas Child – Mary Louisa Molesworth

Mrs. Molesworth is one of the few writers of tales for children whose sentiment though of the sweetest kind is never sickly; whose religious feeling is never concealed yet never obtruded; whose books are always good but never ‚goody.‘ Little Ted with his soft heart, clever head, and brave spirit is no morbid presentment of the angelic child ‚too good to live’, and who is certainly a nuisance on earth, but a charming creature, if not a portrait, whom it is a privilege to meet even in fiction.

Christmas customs and traditions (from Wikipedia):

The celebratory customs associated in various countries with Christmas have a mix of pre-Christian, Christian, and secular themes and origins. Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift giving, completing an Advent calendar or Advent wreath, Christmas music and caroling, lighting a Christingle, viewing a Nativity play, an exchange of Christmas cards, church services, a special meal, and the display of various Christmas decorations, including Christmas trees, Christmas lights, nativity scenes, garlands, wreaths, mistletoe, and holly. In addition, several closely related and often interchangeable figures, known as Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, and Christkind, are associated with bringing gifts to children during the Christmas season and have their own body of traditions and lore. Because gift-giving and many other aspects of the Christmas festival involve heightened economic activity, the holiday has become a significant event and a key sales period for retailers and businesses. The economic impact of Christmas has grown steadily over the past few centuries in many regions of the world. Read more/Mehr lesen...

A Christmas Posy

A Christmas Posy – Mary Louisa Molesworth

The familiar appearance of Mrs. Molesworth’s gift of delight awakens grateful anticipations which are rarely, if ever, disappointed. The literary work in A Christmas Posy is intrinsically characteristic, and the same must be acknowledged with respect to Mr. Crane’s illustrations. Still the stories, a group of six, are variable in conception. Thus their young readers will be pleased to read them, though the modern parental tendency leans towards a quicker brightness than appeals in the opening story.

Christmas In The Adirondacks

Christmas In The Adirondacks – William H. H. Murray

The stories in this book vie with each other in interest. Each is a finished piece of literature, rich in humor and pathos; and without any offensive sermonizing they teach the loftiest lessons of kindness, thoughtfulness, and that all-comprehending sympathy which made the life of Jesus so sublime.

Christmas in Ritual and Tradition – Clement A. Miles

This volume tries to show how Christmas is or has been kept in various lands and ages, and to trace as far as possible the origin of the pagan elements that have mingled with the Church’s feast of the Nativity. It is full of bits of little-known Christmas lore and its aim is to build a rough outline map of the field of Christmas customs, and to bring together materials hitherto scattered through a multitude of volumes in various languages.
