Did you know that Iraqi Christians celebrate Christmas Eve with a bonfire of thorns? That farmers in the Netherlands practice Midwinter Horn Blowing throughout the Advent season? That people in Caracas, Venezuela, roller-skate to midnight mass on Christmas Eve? Find these fascinating facts and hundreds more in this new edition of William Crump's acclaimed "Christmas Encyclopedia". From Charles Dickens to Robert Frost, from "Mele Kalikimaka" to Messiah, and from Charlie Brown to the Waltons, all our favorite Christmas traditions - modern and vintage - are covered here. Crump's second edition of this comprehensive reference work adds 120 new entries, bringing the total number of Christmas - related topics to more than 480. Subjects include individual carols and songs, Christmas episodes of television series, literary figures, and popular Christmas symbols, as well as the origins of some of our most celebrated Christmas traditions. Unique to this work is its emphasis on Christmas as depicted in the popular media, with entries covering literary works, motion pictures and television specials expressing holiday themes.
