<i>Christmas Greetings from the Presidents </i>takes a comforting, nostalgic look back in time to when Americans viewed the annual Christmas message to the nation as the embodiment of a national spirit of unity and goodwill through both the best of times and the darkest days of national trials. The book, the first of its kind by a national publisher, chronicles presidential Christmas messages from the inception of this tradition in 1927 with Calvin Coolidge to President Obama. It provides the historical context of the era, rarely-seen archival photographs that offer us a window into the history unfolding at the time, and a sidebar &quot;Did you Know&quot; feature with trivia that often shines a new light on the personality of the president as he responds to unplanned Christmas-time events.

A fun quick read just ...

A fun quick read just before Christmas. I found it interesting how the remarks of each president reflected what was going on in the country at that time - Roosevelt during the depression; Kennedy assassination had just happened when Johnson gave his Christmas address; George Bush spoke just 3 months after 9/11. I noticed the early presidents brought a more Christian theme to their remarks than later presidents, which is sad to me. Christmas is a time of celebrating Christ's birth and should be celebrated and spoken of. The early presidents were also more reverent and mindful of the military and soldiers who were away from their families. Later presidents, since Kennedy with the exception of Reagan, barely mentioned Christ and gave more of a message of worldwide peace. It's not a book I would ever re-visit, but I was glad I read it.
