Book descriptionEdit

"December 24, 1813
When we got home, we gathered spruce boughs and wintergreen to decorate the house. We hung them all over the parlour and dining room and they look so festive. The prettiest is the kissing-bough we made out of twigs, greenery and apples. It is as if the house is saying, "I do not care if there is a war, I am going to celebrate Christmas anyway.
Twelve wonderful stories of Christmas by some of Canada's top children's writers.
