Moderately successful collection of stories. They all collectively invoke the feeling and spirit of Christmas but I found many of them to be cumbersome and downright tedious.
The last two tales by Dickens and Conan Doyle were magnificent and certainly worth the journey but the others were not so grand. Overall, a slightly satisfying read. Dec 14, Elizabeth rated it it was amazing Shelves: classics , christmas.

A yearly tradition to read Jan 06, Kayla Squire rated it really liked it. This was a lot of fun to read! I love poetry, and telling Christmas stories has always been an important part of Christmas to me, so I was really excited to find this. Some of the short stories weren't my favorite, but most of them I really loved. They had some real treasures in there. A lot of poems were carols, which was fun, and there were some really awesome poems.
It definitely brought some great Christmas spirit, and I enjoyed it. Jan 01, Tina rated it really liked it Shelves: sweeter-reads-book-club.
