This book offers a fascinating investigation of the current expansion of Christmas at a time of decline in other festivals. It is the first comparative study of the Christmas phenomenon and includes discussion of Christmas and materialism, Christmas and the family, and Christmas in a variety of cultural contexts, including the USA, Japan, Britain, Sweden, and Trinidad. Beginning with general theories about the Christmas festival, it is notable for its inclusion of a new and complete translation of Lvi-Strauss's classic essay `Father Christmas Executed'.
