Sleds, Sleighs & Snow
A Canadian Christmas CarolBook - 2005
Canada's multicultural bounty of Christmas celebrations
Christmas in Canada is a time for celebrating with friends and family and for sharing memories and good cheer. The Canadian Christmas experience is filled with many different traditions: from horse-drawn sleigh rides around Mount Royal in Montreal to dog sledding trips in the North, and from musical feasts in British Columbian mining camps to bittersweet dinners in isolated Yukon cabins. From around the world, new Canadians brought cherished customs and blended them with those of this new land.
Sleds, Sleights and Snow brings to life the best holiday stories from across Canada. It captures Christmas celebrations through stories, poems, letters, newspaper clippings, and personal reminiscences from every province and territory and from peoples of many heritages.
It also includes antique Christmas cards, photographs, recipes, and drawings that highlight the many facets of Canada's colorful Christmas season. Covering the early pioneer days to modern times, this is a collection to treasure for many years to come.
