CHRISTMAS LITERRATURE

Postby ASHLEE JAMES on Sat Sep 20, 2008 1:55 am

Christmas doesn't seem quite right without stories and carols around the tree, with remembrances of years past."A Christmas Carol" has become quite famous since the time of Charles Dickens. Read by Tom Casaletto, the work takes up quite a bit of the collection, but it's well worth the time and space to listen to the tale of Scrooge and his complete transformation on the night before Christmas. It all ends with Tiny Tim's famous line, as it should.Probably everyone is familiar with "Is there A Santa Claus," which is answered by "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus." This piece and "A Visit From Saint Nicholas" are old favorites. These works, along with Hans Christian Anderson's story "The Fir Tree," are often read to children.

I agree that A Christmas Carol is a nice Christmas tradition, either in the book or movie form. Ditto for The Night Before Christmas (see http://www.visitfromstnicholas.com/)
