    Christmas Classic!

    Old Christmas by Washington Irving helped shaped Christmas that we all know and love. Irving along with Dickens introduced to the public Christmas traditions that sporead the popularity of the holiday. In Old Christmas Irving writes about his visit to the fictional Bracebridge family estate in Shropshire England some time after the battle of Waterloo. This is a great read, though the first chapter can be a little difficult but after that I found it to be a fun and quick read. The illustrations by Randolph Caldcott are wonderful and complements the story.

For that is exactly what you do in Washington Irving's "Old Christmas". And a devilish jovial time 'tis, t'be sure. Bracebridge Hall is decked out for the holidays in all its old fashioned English finery.
