Christmas happens all over the world, though it's different everywhere you go, with traditions unique to each country. First published in France, this is a pocketable guide to the holiday, its history, and its many variations, exploring the origins of the Christmas tree, the yule log, caroling, Santa's chimney entry, the stockings (and why there's often an orange in them), the crèche, the elves, Mrs. Santa, and many other aspects of the holiday. Presented in a petite edition less than 4 inches wide, with a padded cover and ribbon marker, the book also features lovely reproductions of classic Christmas illustrations from various artists and eras.
