After Thesis List #98: Completed!

December 6, 2010

98.) Read “How Mrs. Claus Saved Christmas”

Done! It is an excellent book. If you’ve never read the Christmas Chronicles by Jeff Guinn, I highly recommend them. He combines the mythologies of Christmas with historical events. Book #2 in the Chronicles is the one I just finished, “How Mrs. Claus Saved Christmas,” and unlike the first book which covers the childhood of Bishop Nicholas to the present, this one focuses specifically on England during the time of the puritan take-over, the ousting of King Charles, Oliver Cromwell, and the outlawing of Christmas. It ends with the Canterbury protests on Christmas Day.
