  • While that may sound like a lot for a book, there's a great deal of content waiting to be enjoyed within the book, spread out across a whopping three hundred and fifty-two pages
  • It's a very pleasant trip backward, though, as it really allows a person to experience Christmas differently from how it's thought of and represented today
  • There's a heavy emphasis on religion in this book, so those that aren't religious might find this book to be boring or ridiculous

      “The Little Big Book of Christmas” by Lena Tabori is a book that can be purchased for nineteen dollars and ninety-nine cents. While that may sound like a lot for a book, there’s a great deal of content waiting to be enjoyed within the book, spread out across a whopping three hundred and fifty-two pages. Why is it called “The Little Big Book of Christmas”? Well, the book itself is big in terms of the amount of content and there’s a little bit of everything in this book. Browse through this book and you’ll find Christmas stories as well as Christmas poetry, in addition to Christmas recipes and religious passages, plus Christmas carols and text that explores the very origins of Christmas as well as how the holiday has changed in meaning over the years. There’s a real impressive mixture of material to read through in this book. I remember feeling after

      my first read through that I had just developed a better understanding of the history behind Christmas thanks to this book.

      Before reading this book, I had a basic understanding of Christmas’ religious roots, but after reading this book, I had a clearer picture of the emotional and biblical significance that came out of the first Christmas and how people at the time interpreted the event as well as how modern culture has altered the meaning of Christmas and essentially reimagined the underlying nature of Christmas.

      “The Little Big Book of Christmas” is not merely a book populated with text. There are numerous illustrations that decorate various pages of the book. The illustrations are drawn with limited details and color and might seem odd at times. That’s because the illustrations represent Christmas as it was celebrated and thought of before the twentieth century. The illustrations thus caught my eye and peeked my interest ...


      • because they didn’t resemble the images that I had come to associate with Christmas. Be prepared for a real trip back into time when you go through the pages of this book! It’s a very pleasant trip backward, though, as it really allows a person to experience Christmas differently from how it’s thought of and represented today. This it what separates this book from many of the other numerous Christmas books that are on the market today. This book really held my attention, for hours and for days, because of how intriguing the illustrations and passages were. There’s a heavy emphasis on religion in this book, so those that aren’t religious might find this book to be boring or ridiculous. I’m not particularly religious myself, but I still enjoyed the book, probably because I looked at it from a historical perspective rather than a religious one. If readers that aren’t religious do
        so as well, then this book might just prove to be a real page turner!
