Continuing in the format of the previous editions, a wide variety of subjects are included: individual carols and songs; historical events at Christmastime; popular Christmas symbols; Christmas plants, place names, and stamps; and celebrations in countries around the world, including the origins of some of the most cherished traditions in the United States. Unique to this work is its emphasis on Christmas as depicted in the popular media, with entries covering literary works such as Call Me Mrs. Miracle and Silver Bells, classic television series such as Bonanza and Little House on the Prairie, motion pictures such as Arthur Christmas and Santa Clause 3, and television specials expressing holiday themes.

[What could there possibly be about Christmas that needs to be "saved"? Christmas isn't dead, not by a long shot. But when in the movies Santa Claus is in trouble, Christmas is in trouble and must be "saved." If bogeys or other circumstances prevent Santa from delivering the presents on Christmas Eve, there will be no Christmas because, as far as the movies are concerned, generally speaking, Santa IS Christmas. Explore 53 reasons for saving Christmas in this lighthearted collection of 228 films (over half of which are animated) from theatrical releases to television movies and specials to episodes of television series. The reasons for saving Christmas just may surprise you.]
