piggiebacking on holiday movies

Reading some of the replies on the holiday movie survey, I noticed several people responding with the movie Elf. That got me thinking of my favorite holiday story Santa's Helper, written and narrated by David Sedaris, in which he describes his gig as an elf at Macy's. If you haven't heard him read that story, I highly recommend it. It has me in stitches every time.

Do you have any favorite holiday stories?

I agree with Gift of the Magi. I remember the first time I read it and it was so sweet. I bought a class set of copies (there were several other stories in it) to read to my middle schoolers when I taught 8th grade.

I'll have to look for that one, cvt!

I'm just chiming in to say that I also love David Sedaris. His story about his stint as an elf is hysterical.

Mrs. Miracle series by Debbie Macomber

The Christmas stories by Richard Paul Evans. He seems to have a new story every year.

My favourite Christmas story is Dave Cooks the Turkey by Stuart MacLean. It makes me screech with laughter every single time. When I read it, I hear Stuart MacLean's voice in my head.

That story by David Sedaris is also funny.
