In this picture book, Newfoundland author Kevin Major employs a colourful array of Christmas postcards to tell the story of Aunt Olga, a ninety-five year old poet, and her niece, Anna. As she shares her postcard collection with Anna, Aunt Olga reminisces about past Christmas memories and teaches Anna to write her own Christmas rhymes about skating, angels, and Santa Claus.
