A philosophical but fun look at the meanings of Christmas myths and rituals, from carving the turkey to why Santa wears red. Picture the scene: Aunt Gertrude has just given you the most appalling Christmas tie, complete with snow-flecked kittens in a bowler hat. Do you smile, nod, and confine it to the bottom drawer? Or do you tell the truth and spare yourself future ties from hell? Kant would say that we must, at all costs, tell the truth - whilst Mill would insist that we should think of the consequences. THE XMAS FILES is a philosophical meander though the myths and rituals of Christmas today, asking such important questions as does Santa exist? What's wrong with Christmas kitsch? Is it all just a commercial racket? What was Augustine's attitude to 'peace on earth'? And what would David Hume have to say about the virgin birth? For underneath all the festive fun, the way we celebrate Christmas does raise serious questions about the beliefs that sustain us, and the ways in which we still value ritual and tradition as a means of coming together.

Everyone says that Christmas is a magic time, but could there be more to that saying than just a clever platitude for holiday greeting cards? The X-mas Files vows to find out if the truth really is out there. The book is a complete compendium of real Santa Claus sightings, holiday ghost stories, angel and magical creature encounters, and real Christmas miracles. From spotting Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve to receiving visits from ghosts during the holidays, from miraculous healings to angelic interventions, the witnesses in this book provide evidence and testimony that there really is something magical about Christmas. The book is divided into five sections. The first three cover Claus Encounters of the First, Second, and Third kinds. Claus encounters of the First Kind are cases that feature witnesses who have seen flying objects during Christmas. Second and third kinds are more up close and personal encounters with the Man in Red. Next, we'll hear tales about spirits and ghosts that haunt our houses, mansions, and castles during this festive time of year. Angels, we'll also discover, aren't just hanging out at the top branch of the Christmas tree, they are all around us during the holidays. Then, we'll be amazed by accounts of Christmas miracles and cases of holiday healings. Each section features dozens of stories from dependable sources. Whether you're a believer or a skeptic, a Scrooge or a Santa wannabe, there's something for you in the X-mas Files.
