Panther Books Ltd was a British publishing house especially active in the 1950s and 1960s, specialising in paperback fiction. It was established in May 1952 by Hamilton's Ltd and titles carried the line "A Panther Book" or "Panther Science Fiction" on the cover. Science fiction was one of the major genres published by Panther Books and titles included Ray Bradbury's The Golden Apples of the Sun and Asimov's Foundation Trilogy.
This is another one of those books that we read every Christmas when we were little. A little boy makes a snowman and it magically comes to life. Then the snowman takes the boy on a great adventure to the North Pole.
Portions of One Christmas were originally published in Ladies’ Home . But one way and another we do each year accumulate Christmas savings, a Fruitcake Fund.
Portions of One Christmas were originally published in Ladies’ Home Journal and the entire story was published by Random House, In. in 1983. The Thanksgiving Visitor was originally published in McCall’s and in book form by Random House, In. in 1968. The Fun was a stereopticon with slide views of Washington and New York lent us by a relative who had been to those places (she was furious when she discovered why we’d borrowed it); the Freak was a three-legged biddy chicken hatched by one of our own hens.
The six days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve are the Sunday . The obligations of the New Year still feel ten million miles away
The six days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve are the Sunday afternoon of the year-a grace note on the calendar, a dreamlike week where everything feels half celebratory and half asleep. The relentless holiday hysteria has peaked and fizzled, but the mood of the world remains festive-decorations are still up, gifts of all sorts have been given and received and are ready to be read or listened to or bundled up within (or discreetly thrown away). The obligations of the New Year still feel ten million miles away. Bristlecone pines have survived various catastrophes over the millennia, and they may survive humanity.
Christmas superstitions If the wind is blowing on Christmas Day, you are in for a good year. American colonists in New England celebrated the coming of the New Year by firing guns into the air and shouting. Today, New Year’s celebrations are still rich in old traditions. If you want to have good health throughout the next year, eat an apple on Christmas Eve. If you want to be happy, eat Christmas pudding on Christmas Day. If you wear new shoes on Christmas Day, it will bring you bad luck. Women in Morocco, for example, make a fire of straw on the roof-tops, and sing and dance around it.
