Two turtle doves and a partridge in pear tree.

I ordered a bunch of books from Amazon for Christmas gifts. Most of them are for my husband. Between the two of us, we have tons of books. I finally bought a Kindle, but I’ll never stop buying books.

I found my copy of Truman Capote’s Music for Chameleons the other day. I still can’t believe the same man who wrote In Cold Blood also wrote Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Capote’s A Christmas Memory is a favorite of mine. It almost makes me like fruitcake. And reading it, always makes me cry.   

I read O. Henry’s Gift of the Magi when I was in grade school. Every time I see a pocket watch, which isn’t very often, I think of that story.

For me, these stories of simpler times and selfless giving embody the true spirit of the season.

Do you have any favorite holiday stories?

I’ve posted two days in a row. That’s a record! I’m attempting to post for twelve days straight. Thanks for visiting.
