Not for me

Altho the narrators did a good job, there were too many stories that were not familiar at all and thus not "great classics". It started off with Dickens' "Chritmas Carol", which I really enjoyed but then lost me - except for "Gift of the Maji" and "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus", and the Beatrix Potter. All the other stories were awful. I'd pass on this one.

What a lovely collection of Christmas stories!

I truly enjoyed the wide variety of Christmas stories and the variety of narrators, they each brought a little something extra to the story that they gave voice. I particularly enjoyed the tales by Washington Irving. If you enjoy a variety of holiday/Christmas customs then this is the book you may want to give a listen to.
