From the cover: “The Perfect Christmas was first published more than half a century ago and is a charming, nostalgic look at Christmas in those easy days before the Second World War. Yet this book is as practical, useful and instructive now as it was when first published. Miss Henniker Heaton prescribes a delightful recipe for every aspect of the Christmas holiday including food, games, guests, house-parties, decorations and family reunions.
Few writers have the talent to amuse and instruct as Miss Henniker Heaton did — The Perfect Christmas is written and illustrated with a delicacy that will delight readers of all generations. This volume and Miss Henniker Heaton’s other works were the forerunners of the more serious tomes on etiquette and manners, but here there is a lightness of touch which appeals to all ages.
The Perfect Christmas is the perfect guide for the entire Christmas holiday and is still the perfect gift for anyone who wishes a proper old-fashioned Christmas.”
