My Thoughts About The Book: This collection of short Christmas season stories is a book that could be read year round even though it is about Christmas. I am usually not a huge fan of collections because in them you find you really like some and others not so much. This collection was no exception. There were several stories I could not wait to finish and others I did not want to end. "On The Night of His Birth; Mary's Story" and "Watchman, Tell Us of the Night" were two I really enjoyed. If you love reading Christmas themed stories then you will enjoy this one. There is a little something for everyone, just pick a story and enjoy it.
