A Chesterton Christmas: Essays, Excerpts, and Eggnog
Chesterton reminds us that a theory of Christmas is really a theory of everything - literature, fire, sausage, happiness, mystery, knowledge, and paganism. So we should not be surprised to find a Chestertonian essay on Christmas is an essay on throwing a sausage in the fire or a pagan in the snow. Both might be warmed but not for the same reason and not to the same ends. This publication - replete with poems, whole essays, and quotes - provides us with the most complete anthology of what Chesterton had to say about Christmas. It is perfect for personal reflection, group discussion, or family devotion during Christmas or Advent.
