A celebration of Yuletide food through the centuries. This mouthwatering book celebrates classic Christmas stories and their food and feasts. Each chapter covers a different era and the important foodie tales of time, including Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Jane Austen’s festive celebrations, and Christmas with Dickens. Claire Hopley rediscovers the joys of literary Christmases and the meals enjoyed by classic characters, including Harry Potter’s Christmas at Hogwarts with its impressive display of food, his first-ever feast after years of being neglected, and the Grinch’s failed attempt to ruin Christmas by stealing the Who-pudding in Dr. Suess’s children’s tale How the Grinch Stole Christmas. With 40 must-try Christmas recipes, including a pork pie inspired by the one Pip gave to Magwitch in Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations, a Christmas Pudding recipe like those described in Anthony Trollope’s Orley Farm, as well as a turkey curry based on Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’s Diary, this book is the perfect gift for people who love Christmas, its traditions, and its foods, as well as a must-buy book for foodie booklovers who want to know more about Christmas feasts in their favorite tales.

The ADVENTure of Christmas is a guide for moms concerned that their children are losing sight of Jesus in the midst of the distractions the holiday season brings. Lisa Whelchel was such a mom, but instead of abandoning the traditions of Christmas she rediscovered their original meanings, which were intended to remind people of God’s unfathomable gift. Hanging lights on the house, wrapping gifts, and decorating the tree have become opportunities to teach her children about how they relate to Jesus’ birth. With The ADVENTure of Christmas, mothers can redeem what’s been lost from the very symbols that are gentle reminders of the true meaning of Christmas. Have you discovered that Jesus sometimes gets lost in the middle of the hustle and bustle of His birthday party? Would you like to be able to keep your children's focus on Jesus and also join them in the wonder of the celebration? For each of the twenty-four days preceding Christmas, The ADVENTure of Christmas serves as a fun and handy guide that describes the significance behind your favorite traditions. Hanging lights on the house, wrapping gifts, and decorating the tree will become opportunities to share how these customs relate to Jesus' birth. The ADVENTure of Christmas recaptures the true meaning of this beloved season, giving reasons to celebrate for years to come. Story Behind the Book Feeling like Jesus had gotten lost in the frenzy of the holiday season, I asked the Lord to show me what I could do to teach my children the true meaning of Christmas. I was caught off-guard when He simply replied, "Don’t do anything differently. Look in the middle of the celebration and you will find Me." He was right. There was no need to orchestrate moments to pontificate about "the commercialization of Christmas." Instead, Jesus is beckoning us to come to the party and bring the kids. In doing so, we run into Him at the mall, the movies, even at school. He hides in the lights, the carols, and the cards. He is there when we dress the evergreen tree, when Dad dresses up in a red suit, and even when we eat turkey and dressing! From the Hardcover edition.
