If you want to find out the behind the scenes history of Christmas, then Christmas: A Biography will give you an in-depth summary in condensed volume. I’ve researched the history behind the beloved holiday and this book sheds light on so many other topics including : how Santa Clause came to be, when wrapping presents became a thing, how much does religion really have to do with this holiday and how the holiday has morphed over time.
I received this book from NetGalley for free in exchange for my review. When I saw a finished copy I grabbed it from the library. If you enjoy history and holidays this book may be the perfect combo. This book didn’t personally grab my attention right away, but I came away from reading it much more educated on the background of Christmas.
