Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Yes, the author's name really is Candy Christmas; she is a popular gospel musician and Nashville-based recording artist. And the book is much like Christmas candy-brightly colored and excessively sweet. ("Is there anything more fun during the holidays than a Christmas party?" Christmas gushes.) This is primarily a guide to holiday entertaining, complete with recipes, some of which are first-rate. In a section entitled "To Grandmother's House We Go," Christmas waxes nostalgic about her grandparents' loving Christmas celebrations, which are described in tones that are generically Currier-and-Ivesish and sentimental. Much more credible is Christmas's recollection of the birth of her son Nicholas, who was dangerously premature and was first allowed home from the hospital on Christmas Day. The full-color art, which is the real highlight of the book, beckons readers to indulge in fantasies about special holiday foods, festive table settings and perfectly wrapped presents.

Introduction

Welcome, friend! I'm so pleased to have you as my guest. Please join me for an intimate journey through my home to an enchanted yuletide in the Christmas family fashion.

Christmas is a special time of year when family and tradition blend together into magical holiday grandeur. It's a time to express love for one another and celebrate the heritage of our faith at the many parties and festive gatherings with those who are dear.

Nestled in the pages of this book, you'll find many of my favorite recipes that have been tried and proven throughout the years. Most of these wonderful delicacies were handed down to me by family members and are as much a part of our holiday tradition as carving Turkey Tom on Christmas Eve.

You'll also find fun candy and craft ideas that are designed with tiny hands in mind. My children and I love preparing them together and, in doing so, we've made many happy memories, enriched our relationships, and brought special cheer to our holiday.

I'll be sharing with you many entertaining ideas and family holiday traditions, as well as some of my most treasured Christmas memories and miracles. It is my hope that throughout the lines of every page-each story, poem, lyric or tradition-a common thread will be revealed: The Christmas season is wonderful because we celebrate the birth of the "Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6). Without Him there is no joy of a holiday season. I can share with you the experiences of my life only through the light of faith in Christ, because He is my life.

So after your majestic pine has been filled with sparkling lights, your home is cheerfully adorned, and your guests are seated for your elegant feast, I hope you'll pause for a moment to say, "Happy Birthday, Jesus. Thank You for all You've done for us."

"For in him we live, and move, and have our being."
