We all know about mistletoe and stockings hung up by the chimney with care. But have you heard about Santa's evil sidekick and the Scandinavian celebration of Saint Lucy? Merry very peculiar Christmas, with this sideways look at bizarre yuletide customs from around the world. So leave the mince pies on the mantelpiece if you've been good, block up your chimneys if you've been bad, and put this delightful little book under the tree.
