Synopsis

This in-depth review of Christmas history and traditions in the United States covers a period that most Americans remember well. Everyone can appreciate this nostalgic look at Christmas decorating customs, electric lighting innovations, and tree decorations, all of which changed drastically as a result of World War II. This period of Christmas history witnessed the advent of machine-produced glass ornaments, bubble lights, Italian miniature lights, Matchless Stars, and a proliferation of decorations produced in Japan, Europe, and the United States. Included are many historical photos, colour pictures of decorations from each decade, a detailed text, and updated value guide.
