In 2010 Christmas Treasury Classics presented Stories For Christmas Volume 1. Now we're back with Volume 2 which includes five lively stories your family is sure to enjoy. The Romance of a Christmas Card by Kate Douglas finds the little township of Beulah excited and getting ready for the annual Christmas festivities. What one realized was that several of the town's residents were about to be richly blessed by two very special Christmas cards. On Christmas Day in the Evening by Grace S. Richmond readers of Volume 1 will again meet the members of the Fernald family. Three Christmas seasons have passed since they were first introduced, and the family has grown, perhaps becoming even closer. However, this next Christmas will allow them all to experience Christmas joys beyond their most private dreams. When the Yule Log Burns by Leona Dalrymple is actually two different stories featuring the same basic characters. Both stories help you to understand the true meaning of a wonderful, old-fashioned Christmas and the joy the season brings. What is old Doctor Leslie up to anyway? The Christmas Angel by Abbie Farwell Brown is the story of a somewhat bitter Miss Angelina Terry, as she sets out to prove that the Christmas season isn't as wonderful as many folks claim to believe. Events over several days cause Angelina to find the Christmas joy she knew and loved as a child, and to discover just how pleasant it can be to share that joy with others. Mr. Kris Kringle by S. Weir Mitchell completes our five Christmas adventures in a heart-stirring tale that will delight young and old. Love, belief and happiness are in abundance in this story of two little children who thought they weren't going to have a Christmas, only to discover a surprise greater than any they could have imagined. When you finish this story, you'll have a new appreciation for Christmas...the most wonderful of all holidays. Bottom of the Hill Publishing hopes you enjoy reading these stories of Christmas as much as we did in seeking them out and bringing them to the reading public once again. Merry Christmas to one and all...may you never forget the meaning and real reason for this time of year.
