Travel back in time to when Christmas was a simple affair: children were content to receive an apple, an orange, or a piece of barley candy in their stockings; clothes, meals, and decorations were all homemade; and it was time spent with family–not expensive gifts–that warmed hearts during the holiday season.

This nostalgic collection recalls Christmas celebrations of the 1930s, ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s, transporting readers to the unheated farmhouse bedrooms, thrilling “big­city” department stores, and cozy barn stalls of rural Prince Edward Island. It turns out one thing has not changed: the most memorable part of any Christmas cannot be bought and sold.

Includes eighteen non­fiction stories, collected and retold by scriptwriter, playwright, and historical author Marlene Campbell.
