Publisher's Summary

'Tis the season for witches, elves, and a legion of ghosts. 

Not so very long ago, Yuletide was as much a chilling season of ghosts and witches as it was a festival of goodwill. In The Old Magic of Christmas, you'll rub elbows with veiled spirits, learn the true perils of elves, and discover a bestiary of enchanted creatures. 

Rife with the more frightful characters from folklore and the season's most petulant ghosts, this book takes you on a spooky sleigh ride from the silvered firs of a winter forest to the mirrored halls of the Snow Queen. Along the way, you'll discover how to bring the festivities into your home with cookie recipes and craft instructions, as well as tips for delving more deeply into your relationship with the unseen.

Okay

I really looked forward to this right during the Christmas season. But it was filled with so much foreign material that I could not relate at all and my attention wandered continuously. I thought it would discuss our many yuletide traditions but it dealt with so many other countries so long ago that I could not keep my mind on it. The narrator sounded like she was about to burst out laughing.

Hard to follow along

Very interesting, though I had a hard time following a long. Not sure if it was the narrator (she sounded a lot like a robot to me) or how it was written.
