Book Description
Christmas has always been a time of celebration in Newfoundland and Labrador. Customs of England, Ireland, Scotland and France were brought over by the early settlers and blended over the years into a unique style of holiday. In the communities along our six thousand miles of coastline, residents still celebrate many of the old customs—shooting guns, having "sweet bread", plum pudding or a mug of flip, and going out mummering or jannying. Yuletide Yarns is a special mixture of 24 tales from Christmases gone by. From a variety of story-tellers, the reader will be exposed to Newfoundland Christmas customs, stories and memories, and will understand why getting home for Christmas is still important to nearly every Newfoundlander.
