2012 Edition of Horrible Histories

Horrible Christmas is a Horrible Histories book about Christmas. Every year Scholastic releases a new edition, supposedly for each Christmas. (Although its the same text)


DescriptionEdit

  • History with the nasty bits left in!
  • Horrible Christmas tells you all the festive facts you ever wanted to find out but were too stuffed full of mince pies to ask.

Want to know:

  • A very rude pantomime song?
    • Why making Christmas pudding used to be a crime?
    • How to get rid of carol singers?

Read on for foul-but-festive food, seasonal stories to send shivers down your spine, and cruel yule disasters.

  • History has never been so horrible!
