Holidays on Display

As the semester draws to a close and final projects are being wrapped up, I can’t help getting into the holiday spirit. I’m sure that we are all looking forward to the much-needed break where we can finally relax and spend time with friends and family. Going along with the festive theme, I decided to write this post on great holiday books that the Library offers.

-          Holidays on Display: This book, written by William L. Bird, highlights the incredible window displays that are put up by department stores and other retail locations all over the world. Check this book out and then take a walk down 5th Avenue to see some windows for yourself.
-          Encyclopedia of Holidays and Celebrations:A Country by Country Guide: This e-book explores different holiday festivities in 206 different countries. It is a great guide for learning more about other cultures and traditions.
-          It’s a Wonderful Christmas: The Best of the Holidays: This book is filled with traditional holiday stories and is a great way to get in the holiday spirit! Experts include: “Deck the Halls,” The Great Paper Chase,” “A Thoroughly Modern Santa” and “Eat Till it Hurts.”

Be sure to check out these books and others before you head off to enjoy break. They are sure to get you in the festive mood and make you forget about final projects and exams!
