For more than 30 years as a roving reporter, AP pecial correspondent (and legendary storyteller) Hugh Mulligan wrote witty, quirky, and sometimes poignant Christmas columns from many distant datelines. Whether he was writing from London or Austria, Israel or Vietnam, or the snows of Greenland and the Canadian Arctic, Mulligan managed to capture the essence of the holiday spirit for all to enjoy.
Now The Associated Press has assembled these delightful stories in a new collection, Mulligan's Christmas Stew. This serving of tasty tales is sprinkled with humorous and touching observations as well as enchanting reminders about the joy and reflection the time of the year brings to all, both young and old. The volume features an introduction by Malachy McCourt as well as Christmas quizzes and artifacts from the AP corporate archives.
Mulligan's Christmas Stew is a journey through the world of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, Clement C. Moore's "The Night Before Christmas", the birth of Christmas carols, the real cost of "The 12 Days of Christmas", Christmas at the White House, and so much more! Have yourself a Merry Mulligan Christmas!
