Thirty-two Spartanburg writers contributed seasonal stories to this book, which has been a favorite in the area for many years. These authors invite you to spend Christmas in Campobello, King's Creek, Cowpens, Camp Croft, Clifton and Converse Heights. They take you to the lights of Hampton Heights, Woodridge and a Dickensian downtown, allowing you to wander through tales of "Christmas Cotton," "Granddaddy's Song," and "The Christmas Stick," among many, many others.
Interspersed throughout this chorus of yuletide voices are historical snippets of Christmases past: diary entries from the Civil Way, recollections from the Great Depression, and memories of the heyday of downtown. Buy this book as a gift, but also buy it for yourself. These stories are sure to become Christmas traditions for years to come.
