Description

In this lively illustrated anthology, Anne Harvey recreates the spirit of childhood Christmases past, from Washington Irving's Christmas Day in 1820 to the twentieth century. E H Shepard humourously recalls recycling Christmas cards, a popular practice following the first seasonal card in 1843, and Quentin Blake vividly captures the yearly creation of the Christmas pudding. Clement C Moore's famous poen 'The NIght Before Christmas' evokes childhood memories, and we share the delight of Fanny Longfellow's children who every year received letters from a very busy Santa Claus. Recalling the novelty of snowman-building, tree-decorating, parties, crackers and mistletoe; sympathising with the agonising task of thank-you letters, and the unrelieved joy of receiving notes form Father Christmas, Anne Harvey gathers together a delightful festive collection that will appeal to children and adults everywhere.show more
