    I only got through about half of this before December ended but plan on reading the rest next Christmas season A very nostalgic collection There are definitely some treasures such as A Christmas Carol an episode from the Little House collection involving Mr Edwards playing Santa a Sherlock Holmes story the Little Women Christmas Gift of the Magi and even a touching story by Leo Tolstoy There were also a few little known tedious selections I'm looking at you Washington Irving But still worth spending your time with in December

    Moderately successful collection of stories They all collectively invoke the feeling and spirit of Christmas but I found many of them to be cumbersome and downright tedious The last two tales by Dickens and Conan Doyle were magnificent and certainly worth the journey but the others were not so grand Overall a slightly satisfying read 35 stars
