This was to turn out to turn out to be a different kind of Christmas book. Olivia likes to be the true star of her books--Santa would have met his match. In fact, the cause the book has such a personal feel to it is because many with each of the traditions that Olivia and her family members celebrate had been taken straight from Ian's childhood memories: Being asked to set the Christmas table was a big honor for Ian (as it is for Olivia in the book ). And since Ian never did catch a glimpse of Santa at Christmas, neither could Olivia. The caroling by the piano, the"Santa watch,"the order in which things had been done (tree up Christmas Eve, dinner, caroling, hanging stockings) , even the phrase"warming your trotters by the fire"--all of it has roots in the Falconer residence. It's for the best, genuinely. A book about how a family celebrates Christmas, and how a lot of family holiday traditions actually revolve around preparations.
