The Man Who Invented Christmas {Tuesday's Treasures}

One of the very first stories I remember from my childhood other than the Nativity is A Christmas Carol. I found this must have book at our local library.  It's one of the most interesting books I have read in a long time.

 This is one of those books that you don't forget in a hurry.  It's living history and human interest in one beautiful book. This books was hard to put down.  It's full of wonderful, insightful and well researched information. Having always known Christmas as it is today I was surprised to learn what Christmas was like back in the Victorian era and how much this influenced Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. If you love Christmas and Charles Dickens then this is definitely a must read for you.

In this small but remarkable book, Les Standiford offers readers a gift for all seasons. Carefully researched and written in a stately, lucid prose, this book will be cherished by those who love Dickens, enjoy Christmas, or ponder the endless mysteries of human behavior.- --Roland Merullo, author of American Savior
I hope you will enjoy this treasure as much as I have.
