Book Description

Explore the rich heritage of Christmas past in Cornwall with this varied collection of carols and customs, seasonal recipes and stories, poetry, pastimes and folklore. With extracts from a diverse range of sources, including novels, journals, diaries and authors ranging from the blind poet Jack Clemo to the vicar of St Hilary, a West Briton report of 1812 to ghost stories by Bottrel, "A Cornish Christmas" takes the reader on a seasonal journey into the yuletides of yore and is sure to enthral long-time residents and newcomers to the county alike. From "Christmas at the Workhouse" to "A Cornish Childhood", 'going a-gooding' to the recipe for starrygazy pie, this enthralling collection will be a welcome addition to any anthology of the county and a seasonal treat for all.
