I admit that the hustle and bustle of this holiday season has kept me on the go without much time for me. What a pity it is that we sometimes forget to remember (kind of an oxymoron) the most important things! Between daily chores, cooking, shopping, writing, and Christmas prep, I haven’t figuratively sat down and relaxed since before Thanksgiving.

Yesterday I decided to take a few moments to stop and smell the roses so to speak. Glad I did. Edgy, wanting to calm down and rest, I grabbed Chicken Soup for the Soul, Christmas Magic for five minutes of free reading. Its average 3-4 page stories are ideal for that. I thumbed through the table of contents looking for a title that caught my eye.

“The Perfect Gift” jumped out jumped out with its tale of generosity and unselfish love, then on to “The Twelve Days of Christmas” with its child-centered take on friendship and true giving, and last “The Griswold House” with its hope, healing, and promise to the kids of all ages.

Today I plan to read a little more of the 101 holiday tales of inspiration, love, and wonder. Thank you Editors Jack Canfield, Victor Hansen, and Amy Newmark for putting together this edition of stories from which we all can learn.

Chicken Soup for the Soul, Christmas Magic? is a softcover book with 329 pages. Its suggested list is $14.98. It is available online and stores nationwide including Barnes & Noble, Target, and Walmart.

  1. Christmas 2000 our whole family went to England to my sister-in-laws parents. We played board games everyday and it was a blast!

  2. One of my favorite holiday memories is the year my family spent Christmas with my aunt in her log cabin in Maine! I was about 10 years old. We chopped down our own Christmas tree and strung popcorn & cranberries to decorate it…along with homemade paper & yarn ornaments. Everything was very “old=fashioned” and focused more on family than anything else!

  3. My most magical holiday memories include my children and grandchildren being able to spend time with us on Christmas Eve. The older grandchildren get all excited planning on what we are having for dinner,they help pick out the items for each of the stocking for the little ones, and they always remind me to make sure I get a lot of chocolate cherries.

  4. I love to read, and the most magical Christmas moment was about 5 years ago, after I was losing sight in one eye…I had eye surgery and regained perfect vision in my left eye!
    What a thrill, to see the olors and sparkles and beauty of Christmas and nature.
    I got a camera that year from “Santa”, and have enjoyed photgraphy, and reading again, of course, since that magic day thanks to a very skilled doctor and to my family for helping me with a very long recovery.

  5. growing up we always had a silver tinsel tree with a wheel rotating light. I loved shutting off the lights and watching the silver tinsel change colors.

  6. I guess when I was little and received a squirrel watch and the tail moved with each second. Seeing as I’m 64 and recalling this it must have been pretty magical. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway

  7. The most magical holiday moment I remember was when my parents put up a silver Christmas tree and had a 4-color light aimed at it. As a child the lights and the changing colors reflected onto the tree were very magical. I loved having our family together eating finger foods on Christmas Eve. My mom came up with this idea because she knew we wouldn’t sit down to a regular meal because we were too excited to open gifts.

    I carried the snacks and finger foods Christmas Eve “meal” tradition with me to my family.
