Christmas Reads

Happy Wednesday All,

Can you believe it? Just a little over a week until Christmas. (If you look in the margin of this blog you'll see I have a countdown for Christmas and one for New Year's).

Once in awhile I come across Christmas stories I really love. Here's a few:

The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber. (Really funny, and also a fun read).

The Christmas Shoes by Donna VanLiere (based off the hit song. If you cry easily make sure you have a tissue box nearby!)

The Christmas Box Collection by Richard Paul Evans. (This series is what got me reading Richard Paul Evans books).

Of course, The Night Before Christmas poem by Clement Clarke Moore or Henry Livingston, Jr. is always a great read and the Nativity stories in the Gospels in the Bible--but I do realize not everyone is Christian--but I don't really know stories dealing with Hanukkah and other holidays.

In any case, whatever you choose to read this season (or any season) hope it takes you away on a wonderful journey :-)

Have A Wonderland Wednesday!

Ugh to The Christmas Shoes. I hear that song and it makes me cry every single time. I don't think I could handle reading the story!

Great list! :)

The story is really nice, but yeah, the song does make me cry. They were showing the movie that goes with the book (and song) on TV and it was the part where the mother is dying and I started to bawl!

I believe the actress who was in Steve Martin's "Father Of The Bride" (she played his daughter) plays the mom in the movie version of "The Christmas Shoes". Good actress :-)
