On the Sixth Day of Christmas...

On the 6th day of Christmas my true love gave to me 6 geese a-laying

Hmmm. First off let me say that if you haven't read today's review post, this prize won't make much sense to you. You've been warned. I would go and read that first if I were you.

Today's prize is a gently used hardback copy of of Christmastime by Sandra Boynton. This is out of print and it is probably one of my all-time favorite Christmas books. So I searched high and low and found a copy to give to you, my lovely readers. Since I'm not giving up my own, you know! Did I mention it was out of print?

About the Book (from the back cover): "What is surely the jolliest time of the year? What day involves a whole season of intensive preparation? What magical mid-winter event is celebrated with an exuberance of song, food and drink, and an abundance of green? What is the most compelling occasion for the gathering together of family and friends to exult in a common spirit of joy and wonder and reverence and hope?

The answer, of course, is Super Bowl Sunday, but unfortunately Sandra Boynton knows very little about football so she chose instead to write about Christmastime.

With guest appearances by Santa and his reindeer, Boynton's familiar menagerie reveals the many joys and satisfactions that make Christmastime such a universally special season. Full-color drawings throughout. A humorous and compassionate carol that makes the perfect gift."
