Elaine - Looks like this may very well be the Christmas book of the season for the Maritime books. Maxine MacDonald, Coles, Sydney Shopping Centre, Sydney, NS
Christmas in the Maritimes is a wonderful collection of both heart-warming and humorous stories from people all over the Maritimes.  The stories are full of memories of special holidays gone by and traditions that are continued among many families for generations.  This would make a wonderful gift for anyone on your list, but I think it would be especially wonderful for anyone who is now living away from the Maritimes.  The book is now in its third printing, congratulations Elaine!” Verna Murphy, columnist for The Reporter, Port Hawkesbury, NS

Book Description
Christmas 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 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.
