Christmas in America: A History
Restad, Penne L.,
ISBN: 0195093003
Oxford University Press, New York, 1995. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. Illustrator: black and white plates.. First Edition. the history of Christmas cannot be summed up so easily as the commercialization of a sacred day. As Penne Restad reveals in this marvelous new book, it has always been an ambiguous meld of sacred thoughts and worldly actions-- as well as a fascinating reflection of our changing society.\nIn Christmas in America, Restad brilliantly captures the rise and transformation of our most universal national holiday. In colonial times, it was celebrated either as an utterly solemn or a wildly social event -- if it was celebrated at all. Virginians hunted, danced, and feasted. City dwellers flooded the streets in raucous demonstrations. Puritan New Englanders denounced the whole affair. Restad shows that as times changed, Christmas changed -- and grew in popularity.
