A TREASURY OF OLD-FASHIONED CHRISTMAS STORIES
In the house of Christmas there are many books and many stories. Most have no more vibrance than a week-old bouquet of flowers.
Not so with this collection. Not a single story is included unless it shakes you to the core of your being. Unless it moves you to laughter and tears. Unless it bypasses the tinsel and hype in order to find the Reason for this sacred season. Such stories are scarce as emeralds. To fill a book such as this, the past must be mined for those great stories that have stood the test of time.
If you love old-time stories, this book is for your and your loved ones. Many families share a story or two a day from this series during the Christmas season.
Christmas to me is far more than just a day, more even that the Advent and 12 days of Christmas–in truth, Christmas is a state of mind, an attitude, an incurable case of ‘Joy to the Lord.’ Children know all this, for they are born joyful. Their clear vision is not yet clouded by cataracts of acquisition, greed, or ruthlessness. A sense of wonder . . . . That is what children are born with, and then lose somewhere along the way.
