How do you feel about Christmas? Excited and childlike at the upcoming celebrations? Or bored and slightly jaded by yet another dose of Victorian sentimentality and commercialism?
If you're feeling the latter - then this is the book for you! Author Nick Baines takes a personal journey through the ups and downs of the typical Christmas experience, asking whether there is really anything more to it than fairy tales and mass consumerism.
Funny, thought-provoking and never preachy, he discovers that underneath all the layers of shopping and spending, Christmas can still offer deep joy and meaning for us in the twenty-first century.
'... a rallying cry for Christians to become counter cultural ... [Baines] hows how easy it is to throw God (and baby Jesus) out of Christmas along with Santa Claus as we become too old for "fairy stories" ... For non-believers he makes a pretty good case to suggest that if they look beyond the "presented" Christmas into the real thing they might just find something of what they are looking for.' - Clem Jackson
