Thirteen Christmas Stories in the Basket by the Fire

Thirteen Things about my Christmas books. I always buy PrepGirl and BrownBear a Christmas story every year. Here are my favorites so far:

1. A Creature Was Stirring: One Boy's Night Before Christmas
2. Harvey Slumfenberger's Christmas Present
3. Auntie Claus
4. A Christmas Tree in the White House
5. How Santa Got His Job
6. The Polar Express
7. Who is Coming to Our House?
8. The First Night
9. The Night Before Christmas
10. The Night Henry Ford Met Santa
11. One Wintry Night
12. Get Dressed, Santa!
13. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Not all classics, but they are in our house. I hope your Christmas is joyous and blessed.

Now just don't use those stories in the basket by the fire to kindle a fire!

I like your list.....I usually read Berkley Breathed's The Red Ranger Came Calling to my kids. They are always amazed at the ending and those that tell me they don't believe become doubters real quick.

I just watched the Polar Express on Dish the other day. Is it anything like the book? You have a nice collection of Christmas books.
