Not too late to do individual stories for the Multilingual Christmas Collection. I will add the link to my list of sources, if you have no objection. :)

Hey, that's a nice idea :D
But I'm not sure there's anything short enough in there...

They seem to be quite short little things... I think they are all under 5000 words or so.

This Way to Christmas
by Ruth Sawyer

Stranded in upstate New York with just seven days to go until Christmas, a lonesome boy comes up with an ingenious way to bring Christmas to the equally lonesome inhabitants of his small mountain community, all of whom were spending the winter far from home. Visiting each in turn, David befriends his neighbors and delights in hearing the Christmas stories they share with him, stories they heard in their homelands long ago. A final celebration brings all the neighbors of different nationalities together, forging relationships that will outlast the holiday season and sending a message of hope to a war-torn world.

I saw this on the Google books project but not on project gutenberg. It was published in 1916, so I believe it is PD in the US. First caught this because of the recent post by neerajanagarajan.

This seems like it would be a fun one to do.
