Join Alice Taylor this Christmas as she welcomes us into her home and shows us the traditions of her family's Christmas. Alice looks back over her past Christmases and prepares for this Christmas.

With all the warmth of a winter fire, Alice takes us through the exciting preparation for Christmas from getting the perfect tree to baking those very crucial puddings and pies.

Alice also give us a intimate insight into her Christmas Eve and Christmas day rituals and talks us through her favourite Christmas recipes. She tells how the Christmas foods were made when she was a child, using the bastable and the range, and how she prepares them now.

Alice loves Christmas and her huge enjoyment of the season fills this book with pleasure and delight.

MEDIA REVIEWS

a must for those of you who like to put their feet up in front of the fire and read about the joys of Christmas ... a pure joy

* The Kerryman *

a treasure trove of precious Christmas memories guaranteed to warm the soul of readers this festive season ... Alice's book is a journey worth taking ... charmingly seasonal

* The Kerryman *

part memoir, part festive compendium ... her silky prose which so captivated readers in her previous memoirs such as To School Through the Fields and Do You Remember?, is the perfect craft to lend itself to such a warm and evocative time ... Taylor's joy of everything that surrounds the festivities permeates each page, with a whole chapter dedicated to even the most incidental of tasks, such as collecting the moss in woods near her home to create her traditional crib and manger

* The Sunday Business Post Magazine *

the cover ... is as romantic as you could find in its depiction of a Christmas wreath on a front door, and it's a fair indication of the contents ... these reminiscences of rural Cork Christmases will be just the fare her devoted readers crave ... beautifully produced and illustrated

* Tuam Herald *

a beautifully produced new book about the festive season

* Irish Examiner *

this much loved Irish author looks back over her past Christmases and prepares for this year's celebrations

* Belfast Telegraph *
