    I listened to this a year ago and for some reason didn't shelve it. I've marked it as dnf as I didn't listen to every story. Some of the tales were interesting. Others not so much.

    This book had some really nice Christmas stories. The book was put together in the early 1900s. There was a story from the time of King James of England in the 1600s, and a story placed near Trenton New Jersey in 1776, during the American Revolution. The language usage was interesting, as were the traditions over the years and different cultures.

    This is a good Christmas book. However there are a few stories that are boring.

    Interesting to see Christmas through the ages, a good perspective to where Christmas came for to where it currently is

    The stand-out from this collection of short stories is Hans Christian Andersen's "The Fir Tree," which, in describing Christmas from the point of view of the tree, is horrifying and grotesque.
