Mrs. Stowe, the most popular woman author writing in America during the 19th century, wrote this classic story of America’s first Christmas and published it in a collection of other stories. It is a Christmas story set in Massachusetts at the time of the pilgrims by the well-known author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Never before published by itself, this essay deserves to stand with other important and memorable classic Christmas stories, evoking the joy and meaning of Christmas in America. "Let us look into the magic mirror of the past and see this harbor of Cape Cod on the morning of the 11th of November, in the year of our Lord 1620, as described to us in the simple words of the pilgrims."
