Mini Book Breakdown

I really enjoyed this one! I learned so much about all the different 'Christmas' like holidays around this time of the year and I love learning anything I can about Krampus, so that's a bonus! I even learned what Saturnalia wine is and how to make it! 

My only compliant is that I felt this book explained how to make Christmas more Pagan and not how to actually celebrate Yule... if that makes any sense. I know that Christians took Yule and made it their own to get people into the church, so they're a lot a like in some ways but still, I just didn't like that part. Still a great little book with a lot of info and I really enjoy this author, he's very down to earth and I can understand him easily. 

Fully recommend!
