The Home Book of Christmas (May Lamberton Becker) is a family favorite.  When I was really young, my sister read aloud to me, some of the wonderful stories.  I put a new cover on the book (it was falling apart) and gave to her for Christmas several years back.  Then she found a copy and gifted it to me a few years later.  I love this book so much.  Some of my favorite stories from it are:

1. Jimmy Scarecrow’s Christmas by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman

2.The First Christmas Tree by Eugene Field

3. The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Anderson

There are many more too.

Finally, I also was a fan of Little House on the Prairie as a kid and even later years.  There was an episode called, The Lord Is My Shepherd.  Description:  Convinced that she is responsible for her brother’s death, Laura runs to the mountains in the middle of the night. Atop the mountain with her is Jonathan, a kindly old man who helps her reaffirm her.

Watch it with your kids – great stuff.

What are your favorite Christmas movies, books, etc.?  Let’s compare lists…I may have forgotten some.

Merry Christmas to you and your families!
