The manger or Macy's? Americans might well wonder which is the real shrine of Christmas, as they take part each year in a mix of churchgoing, shopping, and family togetherness. But the history of Christmas cannot be summed up so easily as the commercialization of a sacred day. As Penne Restad reveals in this marvelous new book, it has always been an ambiguous meld of sacred thoughts and worldly actions– as well as a fascinating reflection of our changing society.

It wouldn't be Christmas without the "things." How they came to mean so much, and to play such a prominent role in America's central holiday, is the tale told in this delightful and edifying book. In a style characteristically engaging and erudite, Karal Ann Marling, one of our most trenchant observers of American culture, describes the outsize spectacle that Christmas has become, showing us the provenance and significance of each of its essential parts: the decorated trees and holiday lights, the cards and gifts and wrapping papers, the toy villages and store displays and Macy's holiday parade, Bing Crosby and Santa Claus.

In May of 1918, 19-year-old Roy Blanchard marched toward the sound of artillery with the American 126th Infantry Regiment on a narrow French road thousands of miles from his home in Grand Rapids, Michigan. World War I had been raging for nearly four years, sending millions of young men to an early grave. America's inexperienced "Doughboys", including Roy, were marching toward the Western Front, determined to help their allies hold the line against the coming waves of German soldiers.

"The Sordid Hypocrisy of To Protect and To Serve" … …is a savage indictment of the worst police practices in America. The Los Angeles Police adopted the motto "To Protect and To Serve" in 1955.
