Summary
Familiar traditions echo across the years in funny, poignant, and surprising ways: a family welcomes a Swedish traveler to their cozy sod house on the prairie; a schoolgirl is frightened by her role in the spotlight for the annual pagaent; a stranger makes Christmas possible for a family after the father<U+2019>s untimely death in the 1930s; a Civil War drummer boy prepares for a makeshift holiday while on duty with the First Minnesota. These stories and many more, accompanied by vintage recipes, advertisements, photos, and decorations, recreate the excitement and spirit of Minnesota<U+2019>s own Yuletide cheer
