Though the book I’m sharing today is filled with beautiful pictures and wonderful scenes of Christmas, it’s also jam-packed with information and the history of why we decorate the way we do, all the way from Maryland down to the most southern states. If you love an old fashioned Christmas filled with tradition, you’ll love this book.
In the BNOTP Library: Emyl Jenkins’ Southern Christmas
Author: Emyl Jenkins
Hardcover: 192 pages
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Explains a lot of the history behind the decorations you see in southern homes during the Christmas season, ranging all the way from Maryland to the most southern states, including Texas. So much information packed into this book! We visit private homes, museums, grand hotels and country inns.
- Very nostalgic, traditional type book, so definitely a book for the sentimental heart who loves a traditional Christmas. Many of the decorations use greenery from the yard, combined with fruit and other homemade decorations.
- Contains recipes for egg nog, sweet potato pudding, oyster pie and Virginia pound cake.
