Christmas of Year's Past

Ever thought about what Christmas was like in the "olden days"? Before the mania of shopping and commercialization of ... well... everything? When children were satisfied with a gift of a ball or a doll? 

This Thursday Cheryl MacDonald will be presenting at Thursday Noon Hour Club on Christmas in Ontario: Legends, Tales & Traditions of Early Canada.  The program begins at 12noon and cost is $1.  This is the last of the Fall 2011 Noon Hour Club lineup. 

If you can't make it to this program on Thursday, we have a number of books on the history of Christmas:

If you prefer a DVD, try Joyeux Noel, an account of the Christmas Eve truce between the British, French and German troops.  

If you attend the program, or read / watch the suggested books and dvd, leave a comment below and let us know what you thought.
