Christmas Bloody Christmas
Christmas Bloody Christmas - Richard Gib... Christmas Bloody Christmas - Richard Gibney,Jennifer Byars,PJ Webb,Claudette Melanson,Lynn Lamb

Happy Christmas, everyone! Am celebrating the holiday by reading Christmas Bloody Christmas - the first story, Lora Lee, which is all I've read so far, is excellent. Can't find a proper cover for the collection, but each story has its own. Here's the first:

Supernatural Short Stories for Christmas
Supernatural Short Stories for Christmas - Denise Jay

by Denise Jay

 

This was just two short stories with a Christmas theme. Nothing too special, but good enough to finish. The odd thing is that it seems to have disappeared from Amazon, so I assume the author pulled it.

 

The writing was reasonably good with no errors, so perhaps she will try again. The plots were perhaps the weak point as there wasn't anything very original, just more Christmas stories to add to the Horror collection.

Lovely Collection of Regency Holiday Stories
Regency Christmas Gifts: Three Stories - Carla Kelly

Regency Christmas Gifts is a collection of three short--but absolutely lovely--Regency holiday stories. As a veteran writer, Carla Kelly obviously knows how to give us readers a stellar historical romance. What she has also done with this book, was capture the true meaning of the Season and wove that directly into each heartfelt story. The result was nothing short of wonderful.

 

‘She had made a difference in four lives, each life as God-given and important as hers, no matter their difference in station and class. This was charity of the best kind, the charity that mattered.’

 

The Lasting Gift was the first story, the longest of the three, and also my favorite...

 

Faithfully Yours was the shortest of the collection but was just as sweet as the rest...

 

Lucy’s Bang-Up Christmas was the final offering here, but it packed quite an emotional punch...

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
How the Grinch stole Christmas! And other stories - Dr. Seuss

This tells the story of how the Grinch stole Christmas, and in the process learns the true meaning of Christmas. A very heartwarming story. 

 

For third graders i would use this book during a Christmas unit i would teach. Not only Christmas but i would include it in a number of books that i would teach about the many different traditions around the world.

Love, Christmas - Holiday stories that will put a song in your heart!
Love, Christmas - Holiday stories that will put a song in your heart! - Leanne Banks,Mimi Barbour,Joan Reeves,Mona Risk,Patricia Rosemoor,Rebecca York,Denise Devine,Donna Fasano,Traci Hall,Taylor Lee,Stephanie Queen,Jennifer St. Giles,Alicia Street,Katy Walters,Rachelle Ayala,Jacquie Biggar,Michele Hauf,Dani Haviland,Nancy Ra A sweet twist on the Grinch scenario. Gordon bottles up his anger and resentment along with loneliness and pain to the point where his bitterness overshadows everything that has importance in his life. Holly is the optimist that turns his life upside down and pulls him kicking and screaming into the magical season of hope, charity and faith. Maybe even love. I am not normally a fan of stories with Grinch or Scrooge like characters but there was something so compelling about Gordon that I couldn't look away. Deck the Hearts exposes what an open heart and open mind can do for the soul and the difference one action can make in the lives of others.
