Once Upon a Christmas

Once Upon a Christmas

It's always enormous fun getting to review Christmas-themed books this early in the year, and this is a really delightful collection of  fifty five short stories related to the Christmas period, covering all parts of the globe and a large swathe of  relatively modern history. 

Heartache, sadness, sorrow and even danger make an appearance, but the Christmas message holds true and strong for the characters we meet in these stories. It is ideal for dipping into, or just reading right through, and I found it to be a great antidote to the commercialisation of Christmas. Just as the cover says, it brings meaning to the season and is likely to become a perennial favourite in our house!
