4 stars
4 stars – It was really good

In this book, Mankey gives us a history of Yule, Christmas, and other Yuletide celebrations. Sprinkled among the history lessons are tips, crafts, recipes and spells that you can incorporate into your yuletide celebration.

While I really enjoyed learning about the history behind these winter celebrations, I do feel that this book is more how to make Christmas more pagan and not a book about how to celebrate Yule. Yes, Christians took Yule and made it into Christmas but I still was expecting a bit more from this book. That said, I do like that he gave us ways to incorporate our craft into Christmas because I am sure a lot of us live in households that are not completely pagan, like mine. 

 Some of the craft ideas he presented sound very fun and I think I will try and incorporate them this year, especially the remembrance tree because my grandmother was a huge Christmas fan and this way I can honor her favorite holiday and her. Overall, this was a great little book filled with history, crafts and spells.
