Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Young readers may be surprised to know that Norse god Thor, whose chariot was pulled by goats, may be one of the inspirations for the Santa they know, with his flying reindeer. That's why the Yule goat is the symbol of the Christmas season in Nordic countries. This and many other Christmas rituals from around the world, from antiquity to today, are explored in this informative book written by a mother-daughter duo. It describes Christmas' origin as a midwinter festival in ancient times, the religious significance of Christmas to Christians, the ban that occurred during the Protestant Reformation, and present-day celebrations worldwide. It touches upon Advent wreaths, the Yule log (and app), Christmas trees and carols, mistletoe, poinsettias, presents, cards, the online Santa tracker, and other names that Santa goes by around the world. The authors and others reminisce about their own Christmas celebrations at home and abroad. Color photographs, recipes, and extensive back matter enhance the text. Fun-filled, with fascinating facts that will appeal to young readers.--Sharon Rawlins Copyright 2018 Booklist"
