Old Christmas: From the Sketch Book of Washington Irving

Book cover
By: (1783-1859)

In his charming collection of essays, Washington Irving transports readers back in time to an old-fashioned Christmas filled with warmth, joy, and timeless traditions. Through vivid descriptions and evocative storytelling, Irving paints a nostalgic picture of a holiday season celebrated with simple pleasures and genuine camaraderie.

From the bustling streets of bustling towns to the cozy hearths of rural cottages, Irving captures the spirit of Christmas in all its glory. His prose is rich and lyrical, transporting readers to a bygone era where carolers sang in the streets, Yule logs crackled in the fire, and families gathered around the Christmas tree in the glow of candlelight.

Irving's love for the holiday season shines through in every page, reminding us of the true magic of Christmas - the spirit of giving, the joy of togetherness, and the beauty of traditions passed down through generations. Old Christmas is a delightful read for anyone looking to recapture the enchantment of a simpler, more heartfelt celebration of the season.

Book Description:
Washington Irving's Old Christmas tells of an American's travels through England during the Christmas season. Through a chance meeting with an old friend he is able to experience Christmas in a stately manor house. Through his eyes as a houseguest he glimpses the uniquely British customs and celebrations of Christmas as it would have been experienced during the Middle Ages, rather than in the early 19th century.
