From the ancient biblical story to those modern holiday favorites we watch on television every year, for those who seek meaning in the chaos of Christmas, Yuletide Blessings gathers truths, myths, and legends that point readers back to "the reason for the season." A perfect companion for quiet nights by the colorfully lit tree, this cozy book of brief essays is topically arranged by author Nan Corbitt Allen. The biblical roots of Christmas are explored in separate entries about angels, shepherds, Mary and Joseph, the wise men, and the little town of Bethlehem. Next, we learn stories behind characters and traditions that followed: the little drummer boy, decorations, St. Nicholas, and more. The unique origins of select Christmas carols are also revealed, inspiring accounts of Christmas during wartime testify to the wonder of peace, and we get the inside scoop on how A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's a Wonderful Life came to be such staples of the season. After enjoying these recollections, you are invited to stay mindful of personal yuletide blessings by writing your own favorite Christmas memories at the end of the book. 
Nan Corbitt Allen is a three-time Dove Award winner whose lyrics and dramas have been performed around the world. Her previous books include The Words We Sing and Watercolor Summer. Nan and her husband have two grown sons and live near Nashville, Tennessee.
