"Anyone who has ever been given the task of presenting a program about Christmas celebrations during the early years of . . . settlement in Texas knows that the assignment isn''t as simple as it sounds. In the future, however, it will be much easier, thanks to a new book by Elizabeth Silverthorne. . . . Christmas in Texas isn''t about buying gifts that cost more than you can afford, to give to people who don''t particularly want them. It''s about the wide range of Christmas customs and experiences, old-fashioned recipes and reminiscences of those who lived in Texas long before the era of twinkle lights, Barbie doll convertibles, and Nintendo games. . . . It is 'Texanized'' by the personal recollections of Christmases past."--Marie Beth JonesSilverthorne, Elizabeth is the author of 'Christmas in Texas' with ISBN 9780890964460 and ISBN 0890964467.
