Christmas in America in the 1700's and 1800's- Books Only

Christmas Traditions of Different Cultures in the United States of America


World Book’s Christmas in the 1700’s and 1800’s is a richly illustrated, 80-page volume about Christmas traditions in Colonial and Early America. The text and illustrations combine to show how the traditions of many cultures were blended to create the American holiday we cherish today.


Christmas in the 1700’s and 1800’s begins with a description of the first settlers to arrive in what is now the United States and their religious beliefs. The book introduces the Pilgrims and the Puritans, the Dutch and the Germans, and describes the contributions these and other early groups made to the celebration of Christmas. From wassail and the Yule log to Sinterklaas (Santa Claus) and the KristKindlein (Christ Child), the traditions of many nations influenced the way we celebrate Christmas today. As the nation grew and spread west, people carried their traditions with them and were, in turn, influenced by the traditions of those they encountered along the way. With photographs of early toys, lithographs by Currier and Ives, and drawings that depict how our image of Santa Claus evolved, Christmas in the 1700’s and 1800’s captures the spirit of the American holiday in the early days of our country’s history.
