Author, Ed Daly, joins Christmas Clatter to discuss his new book The Christmas Book. In The Christmas Book, Ed answers some of the biggest questions that surround Christmas. Why do we kiss under the mistletoe? What on earth is figgy pudding? In what country is Kentucky Fried Chicken a Christmas delicacy? Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? What sitcom had the greatest Christmas episode? What are the best adaptations of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol?
The Christmas Book answers those questions and many more. Readers will learn everything from the holiday’s humble origins (it’s not what you may think) to the commercial behemoth we know today. Every aspect of Christmas is lovingly explored — global traditions, food, fashion, books, music, movies, TV shows, toys, and of course, Santa.
