Christmas stories can evoke such an emotional response. As they express the meaning and the gift of Jesus, they can touch all our senses. The sights, smells, textures, tastes, and sounds of Christmas can be expressed so well with words, given from the pen of gifted writers and those who express from their hearts. My personal library contains volumes of books dedicated to just Christmas stories. Notebooks of Christmas stories collected over the years and stacks of children's Christmas books grace the shelves. But of all the stories, my favorite is the one I have posted below. I first read it as a teen-ager who's task it was to read and analyze it for a literature class. It's meaning touched my heart. It became my favorite and continues to be so to this day. I hope you enjoy it and are blessed by it as I was.
