Overview

Travel back in time to when Christmas was a simple affair: children were content to receive an apple, an orange, or a piece of barley candy in their stockings; clothes, meals, and decorations were all homemade; and it was time spent with family--not expensive gifts--that warmed hearts during the holiday season.

This nostalgic collection recalls Christmas celebrations of the 1930s, '40s, '50s, and '60s, transporting readers to the unheated farmhouse bedrooms, thrilling "big-city" department stores, and cozy barn stalls of rural Prince Edward Island. It turns out one thing has not changed: the most memorable part of any Christmas cannot be bought and sold.

Includes eighteen non-fiction stories, collected and retold by scriptwriter, playwright, and historical author Marlene Campbell.
