ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS: Yuletide Poetry Anthology

All I Want For Christmas. This iconic song is a world Christmas staple. Vince Vance & the Valiants epitomize holiday cheer and goodwill with this Christmas classic. Christmas is a celebration of the best in all of us.

This fascinating poetry anthology book is biblically oriented, theologically rich, and easy to digest. Indeed, the poets worldwide put together comprehensive Christmas wishes in a neat package from material to spiritual in contemporary times. Our love for each other, the true feeling of brotherhood amongst us all.

Here’s hoping that everyone gets their wishes for Christmas, but remember an old proverb: “what you get, you lose. What you give, you keep forever”. Your support is a gift to McKinley Publishing Hub. Merry Christmas!

The book is elegant. All the poems in this anthology are of high quality. The layout and artworks are excellent too. This is a wonderful gift for Christmas!

THE MCKINLEY PUBLISHING HUB is founded in the Pearl of the Orient: PHILIPPINES. Literally, McKinley is a street name where one of the three founders of the publishing company lives. In the context of Philippine History, "McKinley" are the Filipino Ilustrados who fought for freedom and real progress in the Philippines way back during the colonization era of Spain and America in our land. Ilustrados are the enlightened ones, not necessarily rich but surely educated formally (like Jose Rizal) or self-taught (like Andres Bonifacio or Emilio Jacinto or Josefa Llanes Escoda). They held the "enlightenment torch" to light and lead the way for Filipinos living in the "dark" towards a bright future full of hope. Fast forward to now, 2021 which is a century hence plus some more decades after Rizal, Bonifacio and Escoda. There is this new batch of self-published-Ilustrados again. Don Luman-ag, Dexter Amoroso, and Eureka Cambonga Bianzon Robey are these new self-publishedIlustrados. They believe that there is hope in the self-publishimg in the not only for the Filipinos but for the whole world. This time, Don, Dex and Eureka will see to it that they will not be misunderstood (because they are good communicators). This time they will also commit not to fail (because they have a passion for excellence). Besides, real heroism for them is not to put themselves on top of pedestals but for them to make more heroes of this new revolution in publishing. More heroes advocating the democratization of opportunities and progress in businesses, in learning institutions, and in individuals. ALL THESE THROUGH MCKINLEY PUBLISHING HUB. Welcome us as we dynamically adapt so that you all can excel and achieve your dream of becoming a published author.
