Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: A fantastic little book that will have you hooked from the moment you open it. Full of fascinating, but useless, information about Christmas, you'll be able to amuse and entertain your family and friends for the duration of the festive season. Did you know that at one stage in history St Nicholas had evolved into the image of a joker, with a red waistcoat, yellow stockings and a blue three-cornered hat? Did you know that at 46 metres high and weighing 204 tons, the Statue of Liberty was the world's largest gift? Did you know that chocolate coins now come in both Sterling and Euros? A wonderful book packed full of interesting but entirely useless facts about Christmas, the global traditions, symbols, and festivities that we undertake each year.
