ha, that list was longer than anticipated. but i dont accept any complaints this year that there isnt enough material!

please note that i have not looked too closely at each text.

any admin can delete a post if the suggestion was adopted or else if i just didnt see the project.

some of the texts are actually short stories that might fit into the next christmas collection rather than becoming an individual project :)

The rich little poor boy
by Ure, Olive Emma de Gonville, 1876-

this is the story of bobby who went sledding down the hill when the train came, and he got hit by the train and was crippled. but when the neighbors kid says hes going sledding five minutes before the four oclock train should pass there, bobby is determined that he wont let the neighbors kid be struck by the same train too, and becomes a little hero :)

it is adorable.

not quite a christmas story but it begins in christmas time and fits beautifully into the season.
