Just in time for the Christmas season is this book by Mike Henry, Christmas With the Presidents: Holiday Lessons for Today’s Kids From America’s Leaders (Rowman & Littlefield). If the blurb is to be credited, this looks like an overt piece of political-theological pedagogy masquerading as history. Perfect fare for the Friday fluff category.
Everyone celebrates the Christmas holidays in their own way, and that includes the President of the United States. Some have enjoyed large gatherings, while others took part in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. This book takes a look at each of the country’s leaders approach to the year’s biggest holiday season, and some of the traditions they started.
