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)
- 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!
