This beautiful book of thirty-eight essays, illustrated by Mississippi’s premier watercolorist Wyatt Waters, will ring true with treasured recollections of Christmases past. These Mississippi writers celebrate Christmas pageants, decorating, and family dinners—even as they recognize war and loss as part of our lives and sometimes part of our holidays. Christmas Memories from Mississippi looks at the holidays from the early twentieth century through the present and offers celebrations from various points of view, both religious and secular. The book makes an ideal gift of shared holiday traditions and lovingly extends the spirit of the season across the state’s diversity.
