Chesterton Christmas Party at EDB
She wrote poems for their Christmas cards every year and several plays for godchildren, nieces, and nephews to perform during holiday celebrations.
He wrote poems for Christmas, essays for periodicals, the extended meditation on The Nativity in "The God in the Cave" chapter of The Everlasting Man, and of course, his commentaries on Dickens' Christmas stories, including A Christmas Carol.
Watch for another blog post at the National Catholic Register website under my name next week as I describe Chesterton's appreciation of Dickens' A Christmas Carol there.
