Gets You Thinking

Nice collection of essays on Christmas. If you study the subject, this will be a good read to further your knowledge and have more questions than when you started. If you are looking for a nice Christmas story, this may not be the best story. Overall, this worked for me as someone who knows the history of Christmas and was looking to gets varied opinions on the subject.
