in the Maritimes is a heartwarming look at Christmas traditions from Maritimers both at home and away. This is a collection
of favourite yuletide memories written by readers of the Times & Transcript, the Daily Gleaner and the Telegraph Journal
who contributed to the canadaeast.com website, as well as by writers, editors, historians, researchers and other wordsmiths
working throughout the Maritime Provinces. Humorous and heartfelt, these are stories of love and family coming together at
the best time of the year to make it special, often in spite of hardships. The magic of the season comes alive in every story,
reminding us about the history of our region as well as what is truly important about the Christmas season.
