A Christmas Festival

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=138573419&cjsku=138573419...
Novelist ( On Ashlyn's Bridge ) and poet ( Prose from a Grandson to a Senior Fellow ), Derek McFadden returns with a spirited novella that sparkles with the magic and joy of holidays past. Though afflicted with cerebral palsy, the main character, Walter Mathews, fueled by the timeless words of loving encouragement inherited from his dead father, has been blessed with a wife and daughter and holiday traditions that are eternal. It is this loving memory of his Papa and the festive holiday celebrations they once shared that allow him and his family to wake up one Christmas morning to fresh-baked pies, loving sarcasm, ageless wisdom and inspired blessings that have crossed the great divide. A timeless story, as inspiring and entertaining in the middle of summer as it is during the holiday season, grab a cup of hot apple cider, a slice of warm apple pie, and cuddle up with this treasure for the soul. You'll soon smell the aroma of pine needles and hear the excited voices of generations of children as they await the arrival of that special day.

Christmas, A Festival In Verse

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2134550&cjsku=2134550...
Christmas Poetry. An Introduction. Christmas, they say, comes but once a year. In these days it seems to also last for much of that year but this volume is not just for Christmas! For the religious amongst us this annual celebration of the Birth of Christ must seem bitter sweet; most religions celebrate their founders but Christianity seems somehow to have lost possession of one of its key rituals in an ever more secular West. In this collection we rely on the words and wisdom of such fine poets as John Milton, Emily Dickinson, Sir Walter Scott, Daniel Sheehan, Wordsworth, Longfellow and a whole host of others. Many of these poems are also available on our audiobook version at iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores.

Christmas

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95748871&cjsku=95748871...
A critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling author explores the Christmas holiday, from the original festival through present day traditions. Christmas has always been a magical time. Or has it? Thirty years after the first recorded Christmas, the Pope was already warning that too many people were spending the day, not in worship, but in partying and eating to excess. By 1616, the playwright Ben Jonson was nostalgically remembering Christmas in the old days, certain that it had been better then. Other elements of Christmas are much newer who would have thought gift-wrap is a novelty of the twentieth century? That the first holiday parade was neither at Macy's, nor even in the USA? Some things, however, never change. The first known gag holiday gift book, The Boghouse Miscellany , was advertised in the 1760s for gay Gallants, and good companions', while in 1805, the leaders of the Lewis and Clark expedition exchanged what else? presents of underwear and socks. Christmas is all things to all people: a religious festival, a family celebration, a period of eating and drinking. In Christmas: A Biography , bestselling author and acclaimed social historian Judith Flanders casts a sharp eye on myths, legends and history, deftly moving from the origins of the holiday in the Roman empire, through Christmas trees in central Europe, to what might be the first appearance of Santa Claus in Switzerland to draw a picture of the season as it has never been seen before.
