Christmas Stories

candy-cane-ribbon-hollyMerry Christmas, Everyone.

I recently read an article about first lines from books about Christmas; I recognized many familiar favorites:

from Little Women: “Christmas won’t be Christmas without any presents…

from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe: “Once there were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy…”

from The Greatest Gift (better know as It’s A Wonderful Life): The little town straggling on the hill was bright with coloured Christmas lights, but George Pratt did not see them…”

Among the titles was one I had not thought about in awhile and plan to reread this Christmas.  Maybe you’d enjoy it too –

free from Project Gutenberg – my Christmas gift to you:

The Gift of the Magi  819241-M

  1. What a wonderful gift, Rosemary! I haven’t read this in a long time. It was a pleasure to read it again. O. Henry’s language is so beautiful, the story so poignant. Merry Christmas!
