This was pretty interesting Although it is centered around Christmas and Canada, not everything is completely Christmas or Canadian There some chapters were related to Christmas solely through tradition, such as dolls and turkey It also included a bit of history from America, Britain and a bit of Germany.Although I m keeping it for now though, I m not sure if I ll ever read it again It has little interesting facts, but I m not sure if it s actually interesting enough to read it again I ll probably keep it for a year or 2, but it ll probably be one of the first I get rid of if I ever run out of room. I love the tragic, fragile kitsch this book commemorates Seth s illustration style is ideally suited to McCormack s topic and his quiet narrative voice. I just finished this book Late, I know, but life has a way of getting in the way.This is a gem of a book if you like the histpry of hw traditions and cultural events started and how they were influenced by other cultures.Who invented Christmas cards How was fake snow produced Wh started the Santa Claus Parades This book is filled with research and stories.A fun book with short, concise chapters. Lovely charming seasonal celebration that is full of the most fascinating McCormackian tidbits of Christmas memorabiliaDec 2013 wonderfully quirky but with a lively sense of humour that is delightful especially fun is that McCormick uses the opening of the little windows of an advent calendar as the frame for his book so that we have our own treats to discover in every chapter |Pdf ♸ Christmas Days ♘ What Do The Doors Of Advent Calendars Conceal Chocolates, Sometimes, Or Toys Sometimes There Are Illustrations Of Chocolates And Toys And Holly And Snow Things That Make Christmas ChristmasDerek McCormack S Christmas Days Is An Advent Calendar In Words And Images The Chapters Are Doors, Each Wittily Illustrated By Seth, And Each Offering A Behind The Scenes Look At The Making Of Something Quintessentially Christmassy Wrapping Paper, Toy Stockings, Tree Stands When Did They Become Part Of Christmas Where Were They Made Who Made Them A Blend Of History And Reportage, Christmas Days Includes A Cast Of Incredible Characters And A Sampling Of Festive Holiday Treats From The Past And Present
