Get Into the Holiday Spirit with "Everything Christmas"

It doesn't really take much to get me and my family into the Christmas spirit.  Soon after the Halloween costumes are packed away each year, I quickly get the urge to pull out our festive decorations, music, and recipes.  So when I was offered the opportunity to review the new book, Everything Christmas, I gladly accepted, knowing simply from the title that it would be an enjoyable read.

Everything Christmas (by David Bordon and Thomas J. Winters) is filled from beginning to end with wonderful ideas, stories, and historical facts concerning just about anything to do with the Christmas season.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading the craft ideas, decorating tips, quotes, Scripture verses, and classic holiday stories that this little reference book offers.  Spread throughout the chapters are lyrics to many favorite hymns and carols that are sung/played this time of year.  For those who enjoy celebrating the days of Advent, the book is divided into 25 readings for each day, beginning with December 1st.

On top of all that is included on the inside, this hardcover book is also lovely on the outside.  Everything Christmas would make an attractive seasonal book to leave lying on a coffee table for anyone to pick up and admire.  I definitely recommend buying a copy of this book for both your personal library and as a unique gift for a teacher, grandparent, hostess gift, neighbor, or simply anyone who loves all things about Christmas.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. I was not required to provide a positive review, only an honest one. The viewpoints expressed in this review are my own.
