Stories Behind Christmas Boxed Setby Ace Collins
Do you understand the meaning of
Since angels sang when Jesus was born, music has been as much a part of Christmas as candy canes, Christmas trees, and other beloved traditions of the season. Now you and your family can deepen your celebration of Christ's birth as you learn the stories and spiritual significance of our most cherished holiday songs and traditions.
Do you understand the meaning of 'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen'? Why do we use red and green at Christmas? What are the origins of the Christmas tree? Do you know the unusual history behind 'O Holy Night'?
Written by popular music historian and bestselling author Ace Collins, the three books in this beautiful boxed set unlock the origins and meanings of best-loved carols, hymns, and songs. They also explain traditions as familiar yet little understood as mistletoe, ornaments, stockings, and holly. From the cloisters of fifth-century monks, to the frontlines of World War II, to Hollywood sets and Nashville recording studios, Collins takes you on a journey that will warm your heart and enrich your experience of this brightest of holiday seasons.
