Synopsis
Christmas--all history revolves around that event which is central in liturgy as it is in life. History was changed forever because one night in a cattle shed, in a small town of a despised area dependent on the Imperial Province of Syria, a young girl gave birth to a boy Child. Christmas is the birthday of an era, the inauguration of a culture, the beginning of a creed, the fountainhead of man s hope. This book recalls perfectly the origins and historical significance of the customs and ceremonies with which Christian men surrounded the birthday of their King. Once you have enjoyed reading this book, chances are you will find excuses to re-read it even before next Christmas! The information is great, the writing superb and the beauty, meaning and importance of the subject enchanting. Just a few of the chapters covered are: Origin of the Feast; Christmas in the Middle ages; Midnight Mass; Hymns, Carols and Nativity plays; The Christmas Crib; Christmas Tree; Christmas Dinner; Saint Nicholas, Santa claus; Exchanging Presents; Cherished Customs; etc. This book will warm the heart and bring closer to all who read it the real significance and meaning of our Christmas customs. Laced with 22 illustrations by Robert Frankenberg, the book also includes Reference Notes and a very useful Index. Smyth-sewn signatures, cream paper, 188 pages, hardcover.
