Christmas Stories: Heartwarming Classics of Angels, a Manger, and the Birth of Hope by Max Lucado
This is a collection of short stories including: The Christmas Candle. Most of these stories take place during the time of Jesus, some take place in an earlier era. All have heavy religious overtones. Inspiring but not light reading. 3/5 stars.
This is the 6th Christmas book I've read for the season. I will not be reading any more. I was not in the Christmas mood this year at all, I am surprised I read as many as I did.
The only Christmas movie I watched this week was "Arthur Christmas". Arthur is Santa's youngest son. He goes out one night with his grandfather (the former Santa Claus) but he doesn't start out to be the hero, he just wanted to make sure a little girl got her gift so her faith in Santa will not be shaken.
I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but of course, I did. 4/5 Stars
