Washington Irving takes us through a Christmas holiday of good will and great cheer, as seen through his eyes.
Old Christmas is a classic, near-forgotten work by Washington Irving who was best known for The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. It details the warm inviting charm of Christmas celebrations long past.
Warmly convivial and delightfully festival, this charming and long forgotten holiday classic, by one of American literature's most beloved writers, was inspired, in part, by Dickens' A Christmas Carol and other celebrations of old-time Yule.
Splendid suppers and rural churches, cheerful dances and hearty spirits imbue this short novel with the magic of the season. This festive work, first published in 1885 deserves to be a holiday tradition alongside Dickens in the celebrations of the winter solstice.
