"Like sparkling lights and colorful ornaments on a holiday tree, Encyclopedia of Christmas offers myriad facts all in one place.

The Encyclopedia's strong point is its international coverage reflected in the 20 or so entries devoted to Christmas in specific countries or regions all over the world, and the multicultural flavor of its articles.

The more tolerant and inclusive choice of this Christianity-related education, and have so many copies available for people to benefit from, is praiseworthy! For including this and the other Christmas encyclopedias in the KCLS collection, I want to praise the person/s that were involved! Thank you very much! And Merry Christmas!!
