Description - The Big Book of Christmas by Welleran Poltarnees

We at The Laughing Elephant believe that Christmas, like other celebrations and holidays, is in addition to its other roles - a complex set of feelings built on our memories of a shared cultural heritage. Few of us in the 21st century have seen a flaming Christmas pudding or Yule log or ridden in a one horse open sleigh, and yet these, and other holiday icons, have become embedded in our collective ideal of Christmas through culture and tradition. In "The Big Book of Christmas "we attempt to bring to vivid life through a montage of vintage images and appropriate words the most treasured ideals of Christmases past. This book presents more than a hundred wonderful images celebrating various aspects of Christmas. Themes includes: Santa s workshop, Letters to Santa, gift shopping and wrapping, decorating the house and tree, Christmas Eve, carol singing, the nativity and animals at Christmas. Though principally visual, The Laughing Elephant's Book of Christmas includes poems and quotations celebrating the Yuletide including The Night Before Christmas, The Twelve Days of Christmas and some less well-known, but no less wonderful, Christmas verse.
