Review Christmas Days.
Ly charming seasonal celebration *that is full of the most fascinating McCormackian of christmas of Christmas 2013 *is full of the most fascinating tidbits of Christmas memorabiliaDec 2013 uirky but with a lively sense of umour that is delightful especially fun is that McCormick uses the opening of the little windows of an advent calendar as the frame for is book so that we ave our own treats to discover in every chapter The fact after fact style of writing makes the book very interesting to read but ultimately proves a limitation Subjects from Christmas trees to Santa Claus suits are covered in some detail and with a Canadian focus It combines Vent calendar in words and images The chapters are doors each wittily illustrated by Seth and each offering a behind the scenes look at the making of something uintessentially Christmassy Wrapping paper toy stockings tree stands.
