Do You LOVE Christmas?

I love Christmas. I have very fond memories of traditions as a child and now building new traditions with my family is the best part of the season. So when picking out a new title to review for Waterbrook Multnomah I was thrilled to see a book about Christmas, and it wasn't just a Christmas story. I couldn't wait for it to arrive so that I could jump right in! So here is my review. . .

Everything Christmas, written by David Bordon and Tom Winters, is a wonderful book. Its full of wonderful practical things like step by step instructions on making big, fluffy bows, delicious recipes that will defiantly be crowd pleasers and gift ideas. But it also has stories, carols and poems. It even has Christmas trivia and humor. It is organized by the days of Advent, so there is a reading for each day starting with December 1 and going through December 24. It is a lovely way to get into the Christmas spirit and celebrate the reason for the season. I really enjoyed reading about other cultures Christmas menu's and their traditions!! I read the whole book through so that I could write this review, but there are parts that I plan on reading out loud to my kiddos during our Christmas celebrations! We will also try out some of the yummy sounding recipes. This book is delightfully packed full of information and fun for, well like it's name, everything Christmas.

If you LOVE Christmas, if you enjoy the past traditions or making new traditions, this book is a must have!

Check it out here.
