Hi Kevin
I don't really think this is the spot for it, for a number of reasons - in fact the only positive thing I have about it is that it is an interesting find. And it is. But I'm not keen on chapters from books unless they stand alone - and this doesn't, it needs all the rest to be understood. Your first choice was great I think - really what Christmas seems to me about. The whole book would be an interesting addition although controversial though it does seem to remind me a bit of "The Third Eye" :D
Thanks for giving me a choice

Anne

Thanks for your patience with it. I'll find something a bit more traditional for a second contribution. Maybe something with eggnog! (Yum!)

I wish I did accents better, but there you have it...

I found a sentimental story written by an Australian author.

This one doesn't actually mention Christmas in the title, but the story takes place on Christmas Eve, (a magical Christmas Eve when animals can talk and mice can sew!)
So it seemed suitably Christmas-themed. Anyway, I used to read it to my nieces at Christmas time, back when they were wee kiddies.

I couldn't find the original link, but Section 4, Christmas Night with Satan. It's good, I just had one question, at __4:48 did anyone else hear that weird sound. I definitely think it was on the technical side, not her.
