What is your favorite Christmas Classic story to read as a family?


  • THE GIFT OF THE MAGI- is my favorite Christmas classic story. But our life style is changing now, we watch movies instead of reading books.

    My husband the book reader, has tipped over to a few DVD’s at Christmas! One yearly favorite is “THE NATIVITY”! It was at the theatre when we first saw it…very similar to the story in Luke! At least we haven’t seen one as close! Thanks for the book list! We are looking forward to them! Merry Christmas!

    HI IMOM, I tried to download The Crippled Lamb, but could not get it for free at Barnes and Nobel from your link. Any suggestions?

    Hello to all,
    By far my all time favorite Christmas story to read is, Twas the Night Before Christmas,”
    When my oldest son was a young lad, he would have me sit on the edge of his bed in his room and read the story. Not only read it but get up and act much of it out…run to the window and over and over several times. It was a lot of fun though, some 30 years ago but feels like it just happened.
    Don’t forget the reason for the season, He came in order that we might live..Hallelujah
