by Helen Szymanski
Like Szymanski's previous collections, these are short pieces in a "Chicken Soup for the Soul" type of vein. There are some sweet stories that even contain some ideas for new Christmas traditions, like placing love notes on a Christmas tree or sledding in the moonlight, but several of the stories sound rather commonplace rather than being extraordinary. Some good ethnic and vintage pieces, though; all in all a mixed bag of nostalgia. In short, if you like these types of stories, you will enjoy this book.
