Product Description

Christmas is celebrated as keenly in Wales as anywhere and here for the first time is an anthology reflecting the Welsh experience of Christmas over the years. Mass, the nativity play, the Mari Lwyd tradition (wassailing), the celebratory meal, the gifts, the carols, the turkey, the pantomimes, and seasonal weather all get their treatment, in over 100 selections, by poem, story, letter, and diary. R.S. Thomas recalls a wartime Christmas Eve, Bruce Chatwin provides a marvellous account of a nativity play, while Dylan Thomas muses on an uneventful Christmas Day, and Richard Burton, in his only short story, writes of political radicalism on Christmas Eve. Other contributors include Leslie Norris, Dannie Abse, Sian James, Francis Kilvert (a moving account of the funeral service for a young boy on Christmas Day in 1878), and Ruth Bidgood. Wartime Christmas in Swansea and the Rhondda, home thoughts from India and Italy, pantomime characters, and New Year resolutions - all the ingredients for a celebration of the holiday season.. Price: $14.95
