    1. I'm not sure if the author is trying to be comprehensive in the coverage of Christmas topics or is just hitting the high points. This is the 3rd edition of The Christmas Encyclopedia originally published in 2001, adding 281 new entries. What TCE does very well is in its coverage of historical and cultural customs. Black and white illustrations appear throughout . The problems: I found many misspelled words. And the coverage of popular culture was hit and miss. Really obscure TV movies were menti [...]

    2. I love all things Christmas, so I did indeed read this entire book, though I did skim many of the entries, especially the ones about Christmas in various countries. The traditional entries on religion, customs, carols, etc. are good. The book covers pop culture as well, but sadly it focuses on very recent movies and TV shows, and ignores many worthy older items, especially books. The author spends way too much space on summarizing Christmas episodes of shows like Bewitched and The Waltons. Illus [...]

    3. The Good: This is an extensive book on Christmas. If you can think of anything Christmas related, it will be in this encyclopedia.The Bad: This book is hard to read. The text is small. The pages cramped. I would have much rather a larger book than the small print, but the price is astronomical as it stands. In an effort to create a complete compendium of Christmas topics, this book verges on overkill. You have to sift through a lot of dreck to get to anything you actually want to learn about.
