Christmas brings out the best and the worst in us, as can been seen in this evocative anthology. Among what Thomas Love Peacock calls the many poetical charms in the heraldings of Christmas, there are eulogies by saints and diatribes from curmudgeons. Here, Christmas is expounded by divines, sung by rustics, deplored by philosophers, made mystical in stories and summed up in a line by the poet Elizabeth Jennings: The hush, the star, the baby, people being kind again.

    " My opinion of this book might be a case of bad timing. I may try it again sometime. "

    " Read in prep school and all I remember is Clym Yeobright and Eustacia Vye and a
    pretty depressing tale. Tough to rate of course unless I read it again. Date read is a guess. "

    " I loved it, as I love most classics. Similar to most classic British novels, this book has a somewhat slow start. It does, however, redeem itself in later chapters. It was a spectacular read. "

    " Takes a long while to get into the story. I didn't care for the people in the story. Nor did I like the story. "
