DECISION: Keep

 

This was pretty interesting. Although it is centered around Christmas and Canada, not everything is completely Christmas or Canadian. There some chapters were related to Christmas solely through tradition, such as dolls and turkey. It also included a bit of history from America, Britain and a bit of Germany.

Although I’m keeping it for now though, I’m not sure if I’ll ever read it again. It has little interesting facts, but I’m not sure if it’s actually interesting enough to read it again. I’ll probably keep it for a year or 2, but it’ll probably be one of the first I get rid of if I ever run out of room.
