This book, published in 1886 and illustrated by Randolph Caldecott, chronicles the American writer Washington Irving's nostalgic recollections of Christmas traditions in 19th century England. The text first appeared in 1819 in Irving's Sketchbook of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. , which also contained such classics as "Rip van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." You can listen to an audio version of this book courtesy of LibriVox.
