Title: Emma

Author: Jane Austen

Published: 1815

“At Christmas every body invites their friends about them, and people think little of even the worst weather…” – Mr Elton.

Because: this book depicts a typical, and glorious white Christmas. It features family-gatherings, mulled wine, happiness, joy, friendliness, and gossip! A really interesting insight into the merriment of Christmastime in the early 1800’s. The festivities are only mentioned briefly, but what is described to us, in a lengthly, but fascinating context is how ‘every one comes together at Christmas’. And for me, that is the most important thing about this time of year, too.
