Review: It's All About Christmas- A collection of stories, carols, recipes, quotes, trivia, history, and everything you need to celebrate the spirit of the season.

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing



Like heirloom ornaments on a splendid tree, It’s All About Christmas will put you and your family in a festive frame of mind for a glorious holiday season. Stuffed with stories, songs, poems, Christmas history, joyful traditions, recipes, and activities, this delightful book celebrates all things Christmas—from the sacred story of the Nativity to the lore of Saint Nick. Opening this book is like tearing the paper off a much–anticipated gift, offering new surprises with each turn of the page. Generously illustrated with scores of vibrant vintage images, It’s All About Christmas will remind you of Christmases past, help you appreciate Christmas present, and guide you to creating memories for the Christmases to come.

My Review

This is a large volume, about the size of a text book, with over 230 pages of sturdy, high-quality, non-gloss pages filled with gorgeous imagery and heartwarming content. The blend of vintage pictures with clean modern layout design is seamless and easy on the eyes. It opens with scriptures detailing the prophecy and birth of Christ from both the Bible and Book of Mormon. Well-known stories such as 'Twas the Night Before Christmas and The Elves and the Shoemaker are shared, but a wealth of lesser known classics are what drew my interest, especially The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Anderson. Rounded out with fun songs, recipes, and fascinating tidbits that my girls will love, we will be savoring this book for several years! It is a wonderful idea for a gift :)
