This varied collection brings together personal reminiscences, and extracts of fiction, folklore and poetry which look at the celebration of Christmas over the years in the county of Shropshire. Represented here are well-known Shropshire figures such as Ellis Peters and A.E. Housman, as well as those who have their own purely individual stories to relate. Included among the extracts are a medieval chronicle of Shrewsbury, an American visitor's account of Christmas in Ludlow in 1851, and Oswestry-born Wilfred Owen's letters home from the battlefront over Christmas 1916. There are memories of a postman delivering the mail on Christmas Day, a description of a Boxing Day meet of the Shropshire Beagles, and many references to local folklore and traditions over the festive season. This book is the perfect stocking filler for anyone spending Christmas in the county.
