This is a treasure chest full of fascinating facts surrounding the myths and magic of Christmas. The traditional nativity story we all know and love conjures up images of the inn, the stable, shepherds and the three wise men. But there is more to the history of Christmas than most people are aware. Here, Patrick Harding delves deep into the background of the Christmas rituals we now take for granted: sending cards, singing carols, eating turkey - and of course the arrival of Santa Claus. This is a festive read for those who want to know more about our traditions and those intrigued by folklore and history.
