Booklist Review

Gr. 5^-12. With a browsable design reminiscent of a long magazine article or an encyclopedia entry, this bright volume presents a detailed, informative text with lots of color photos. Around 98 percent of Greeks follow the Greek Orthodox religion, a state religion and a central force in daily life. In fact, spirituality is the focus of the Greek Christmas holiday, which begins with a long Lent period of fasting and is eventually followed by 12 days of merriment and mischief. Readers will be interested in the marked differences between the Greek Christmas and the traditional American celebrations. Like other volumes in the Christmas Around the World series, this ends with long practical sections on crafts, carols, and recipes, and a glossary. --Hazel Rochman
