What is the best Christmas story?
There are a few classic Victorian-era Christmas stories you see on most lists of favorite holiday stories -- like the Nutcracker, Twas the Night Before Christmas, and the granddaddy of all Christmas stories -- A Christmas Carol.
Other, more modern classics have found their way into people’s holiday hearts by capturing that special Christmas magic -- stories like The Polar Express and Elf.
If you’ve ever wondered about the history behind these classic Christmas stories, grab a cup of cocoa, light a candle, and read on!
A Christmas Carol is the quintessential Christmas story. It is both timeless and nostalgic -- and groundbreaking in its day.
In writing A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens established the character of the modern Christmas season -- with some help from Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, and the Industrial Revolution.
Spooky season is one of the best times of year to light a candle, curl up with a cup of tea, and read a good book. But what to read?
We did some research into our favorite authors. We think this list will satisfy any lover of classic literature. Whether you’re in search of a macabre Victorian novel or a unique historical fantasy -- this list has something for you.
I recently heard the holiday season described as “having a part-time job from late November until New Year.”
We can all relate. There’s cooking. And decorating. And shopping for gifts. So much shopping.
