A beautiful volume shares with the reader the wonder of Christmas in Italy, where it was first celebrated when Emperor Constantine adopted the new faith of Christianity. This book explains how December 25 came to be the accepted celebration day. Christmas markets are portrayed, the legend of La Befana is told, there are a number of magnificent Italian mangers with beautiful photography. Holiday foods (with recipes for many things) as well as Christmas at the Vatican are discussed. The book is lavishly illustrated with paintings and photographs, and the wonderful Piazza Navona is shown dressed up for Christmas. This Piazza is used for so many cultural events that it would have a center spot in holiday celebrations. The green binding is fine; there is a photograph of an Italian girl placing figures in a manger. 80 pages, including recipes, directions for crafts, and traditional Christmas songs. No marks or tears. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
