Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

This book has everything you need for a Christmas presentation in origami.

Other than the mandatory Santa and Nativity scene characters, you can find here all the players in "The 12 Days of Christmas" song, a candy cane, and even Christmas gifts like a train-set and a nut-cracker, among others.

Most models are accompanied by a fitting Christmas song Unlike most Montroll's book, I wouldn't recommend this book to absolute beginners, as the models are getting complicated from the start.
