Overview

Every fall in school and home recurs the need for a collection of literature on Christmas, an anthology comprehensive enough to include all the best that has been written about this intensely, and now uniquely, American holiday. This book brings to children of all ages all the best poems, essays, and stories of Christmas, the Christ-child, and how our forbearers regarded the day and season. And its scope is yet wider.

• * Originally published in 1907 by Dodd, Mead, and Company, "Christmas: An American Holiday" gives a rapid view of the holiday's origin, its derivation from ancient festivals; its development, its spirit, and its significance.

• * Divided into six parts, Origin, Celebration, Significance and Spirit, Stories, Old Carols and Exercises, and Additional Pieces, "Christmas: An American Holiday" is a snapshot of how our American Ancestors at the end of the nineteenth-century viewed this important holiday, it's origins, and its American relevance. With 113 stories, articles, poems, and hymns, it includes such famous authors as Charles Dickens, Martin Luther, Andrew Lang, Hans Christian Andersen, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Washington Irving, as well as almost fifty others.
