As we reach the proverbial age of “sweet sixteen” (young for a woman but old indeed for a book series) it is appropriate to ask “Why?” Today when almost nothing lasts and fame itself supposedly expires in 15 minutes here we have this simple little series of Christmas story anthologies that perversely refuses to die. Like the timeless Velveteen Rabbit it becomes but more cherished as the years go by.
If the formula could be bottled it would be priceless. In essence it would be an indefinable mixture of stories--new recent old and very old--by authors famous and never-heard-of-before; stories that deeply touch the heartstrings unlock the tear ducts make you laugh yet retain the spiritual dimension of Christmas.
