  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 1/13/2011

    " Interesting look at the background to some well-known Christmas songs and carols. Unfortunately, the author does not provide his sources so a reader cannot fact-check. "

    " It was OK. A lot of the stories were neat to learn, but overall it wasn't as interesting as I thought it'd be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 12/31/2010

    " One of the more in-depth of the popular books on the stories of how our Christmas songs came to be. As a bonus, this book is a pleasant object, with heavyweight textured paper, wintery imaages at the tops of chapters, and the whole of it in ice-blue ink. Includes lyrics. "
