Our distant ancestors appreciated the magical qualities of holly and ivy as two plants that bore fruit into deep mid-winter and made a wonderful holiday decoration. From the holiday ribbon to the beautifully illustrated end papers, this Christmas gift book is a wonderful celebration of the holiday. Very well illustrated using vintage color Christmas cards, advertisements, and other cheery and familiar holiday scenes. The book includes topics about Christmas Magic, Carols and Poems, Decorations, Cards and Presents, The Garden, and The Holly and Ivy World. Much of this book is wonderful to read out loud, either as a gathering of children or kids and adults. One corner has very light wear, and the back end paper has a 3/8" x 3/8" spot that is white. ; 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall
