Christmas Reading

Last night we finished The Best Christmas Pagent Ever.  By Barbara Robinson.  It's a wonderfully humorous story of a family of unchurched children who are exposed to the real story of Christmas for the first time as they decide to be part of the local church Christmas Pageant.  

I just started a knitting project that I need to get done by the weekend so I decided to look for our next Christmas story online. Librivox has many wonderful short stories for Christmas.  We listened to O'Henry's The Gift of the Magi and "The Little Match Girl" by Hans Christian Andersen and several others, two of which were new to me, but fun stories.  They have quite a few collections to choose from.  Search for old familiar stories or browse for new ones. We hope to listen to Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol later this week.  My sister and niece were in a musical presentation of "The Gospel According to Scrooge" a couple years ago and we were able to purchase a video of that presentation.  It is very well done and it has become a tradition to watch it as a family during December.  It was filmed and edited by DTV20 in Sauk Centre, Minnesota and you may still be able to purchase a copy by contacting them at 1-320-351-7288 or

What stories do you enjoy during the holiday season?
