My Thoughts…

Chicken Soup for the Soul:Christmas in Canada 101 Stories about the Joy and Wonder of the Holidays is an enjoyable to read collection during the month of November as well as December. The stories all being true are from people just like you and I. I believe these stories will not just get you in the spirit of the season but encourage you to spread cheer among family, friends, and complete strangers.

I really like reading stories from all sorts of different people with very different as well as similar backgrounds to my own. I believe we all have story such as these to share perhaps this book would be a very inspiration to share a little about yourself with others face to face or through a blog post!

There are 101 stories, each is about about 3-4 pages each. There’s a title followed by a quote that goes with the story at hand. There’s stories of ice storms and losing power, dressing up as Rudolph, a First Christmas, Christmas Trees, Not So Fancy dressing, stories of toys such as a red wagon as well as Barbie, and many more! There are ten chapters with about 10 stories each. The chapter titles are:

  • The Spirit of Christmas
  • Holiday Celebrations & Traditions
  • Holiday Memories
  • O Christmas Tree!
  • The Santa Files
  • A Winter Wonderland
  • Taking Care of Each Other
  • Angels in Our Midst
  • The True Meaning of Christmas
  • The Spirit of Giving

It’s been a joy to read these Christmas as well as Hanukkah stories. I found most to be quite moving and leaving me with a feeling of happiness and hope! Sometimes especially during this time of the year, I feel people sometimes lose sight a bit of why we celebrate and how we should be kind and generous toward each other. Peace on Earth and Goodwill toward men, ya know?

These stories are kid friendly and Santa safe. Santa safe as in there’s no story that would cause a child to lose belief. I would encourage you to pick up a book for yourself and instead of just reading it on your own perhaps read it amongst loved ones or get them a copy too!
