Old Mother Frost: A Children's Yuletide Book


Blurb: Old Mother Frost is a Yuletide story of an ancient Norse goddess who sleeps all year long, waking only to make sure children are happy, healthy and festive during the longest and coldest nights of the year (the 12 days of Yuletide).

Background: Old Mother Frost is a Yuletide book based on the Norse pagan origins of the holidays. It focuses on the folklore and mythologies surrounding the pre-Christian goddess named Frau Holle. For the purpose of the children's book she goes by her English names: Old Mother Frost and Mother Hulda. The illustrations show that ALL children are included in the holidays.

Bonus Page: After the story ends there is an educational 'Fun Fact' page briefly highlighting some of the modern holiday traditions that are traced back to pagan customs.
