The Curry Companion
CHRISTMAS BOOKS. From the early traditions that marked this Mass of Christ, to the modern myths and pagan influences that have merged to create our contemporary 'winter holiday'. Like any good Christmas meal, this book of Christmas treats is complete with all the trimmings, including: the origin of much beloved Christmas tree and why we owe thanks to Norway for the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square; games and trivia to while away the after-effects of the Christmas meal; what is the best-selling Christmas single of all time - test your knowledge of festive tunes with carolling conundrums; in the Christmas spirit - extraordinary examples of events stopping for Christmas, such as the World War I ceasefire between German and Allied troops; and, who exactly is Father Christmas/Santa Claus and how does he do his job after all that sherry? This book is the latest in the bestselling "Companion" series.
