Like heirloom ornaments on a splendid tree, It’s All About Christmas will put you and your family in a festive frame of mind for a glorious holiday season. Stuffed with stories, songs, poems, Christmas history, joyful traditions, recipes, and activities, this delightful book celebrates all things Christmas—from the sacred story of the Nativity to the lore of Saint Nick. Opening this book is like tearing the paper off a much–anticipated gift, offering new surprises with each turn of the page. Generously illustrated with scores of vibrant vintage images, It’s All About Christmas will remind you of Christmases past, help you appreciate Christmas present, and guide you to creating memories for the Christmases to come.

This book is fantastic! Once it came, I was excited to dive right into it. First of all, I love the cover! It definitely gets me in the Christmas mood. 

This is a high-quality book. The paper is multiple colors and thick so the pages are nice to turn. There's lots of cool, vintage artwork throughout. It starts with "The Birth of Christ," using scriptures from both the Bible and the Book of Mormon to tell the story. Some of the stories and poems that are shared are classics, like "The Night Before Christmas," "The Gift of the Magi," and "The Mansion." There are many more stories and poems that are new to me and it will take a while to read through them all.

The history and trivia pages are also fun to read, especially Christmas on Temple Square and the most popular Christmas toys through the years, some of which are still popular today. There are recipes throughout which look easy to make and yummy! This book isn't set up in sections. Instead, the stories, carols, recipes, quotes, trivia and history are mixed together throughout the book. 

This is the type of book that displays well and will make a great Christmas gift. We will enjoy it for many years to come!
