Most of these pieces bring the past into the present, reviving traditions and memories of Christmases long gone. Others reflect the diversity of our Texas people, and still others describe customs that are even today setting new traditions for the future.
Want to make syllabub? The recipe is here. Curious about the way African Americans in East Texas or the Germans in South Central Texas celebrated? Helen Green and Minetta Goyne capture those special customs. Elmer Kelton and Joyce Gibson Roach recall the joy and sadness of Christmases during World War II.
When it was first published in 1983, this small book enchanted readers young and old. Now it has been revised and expanded—new memories have been added, new activities suggested, new traditions explored. A perfect stocking stuffer!
