Chicken Soup for the Soul - Christmas Magic : Book Review & Giveaway

About Chicken Soup for the Soul - Christmas Magic:
In his foreword for the book, Santa Claus writes about how he and Mrs. Claus observe the festivities from the North Pole. He says, "We watch as you reunite scattered family members, enjoy the wonder on the face of a child, feel the joy of gift giving, and remember the true meaning of Christmas. We watch you gather with your communities at church, at school, and even at the mall, to share the special spirit of the season, brightening those long winter days."

Sometimes the Christmas memories we end up treasuring the most have nothing to do with buying gifts or enjoying holiday luxuries. Christmas is a magical time of year -- a time of family, friends, and traditions -- and a time for great stories, whether they are funny or heartwarming. All the joys, blessings, and excitement of the season are captured in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Christmas Magic (ISBN 978-1935096542, $14.95), with its 101 new holiday stories covering everything from finding the perfect Christmas tree, being with family, and seeing the wonder in a child's eyes, to goodwill, love, and the true meaning of Christmas.

Our thoughts on Chicken Soup for the Soul - Christmas Magic:

Who doesn't love Christmas?  As we pack up the decorations this year, it's the pictures and memories that remain!  We think about the laughs, the time spent with family and friends, and the moments that can never be replaced.  This book is great at reminding us about the true meaning of Christmas and you don't need to read it just at Christmas, although you could always tuck it back for next year!  Whether you need a good laugh or are ready for a story that might bring tears to your eyes, each short story is written to capture the Christmas Season!

I hope to win the giveaway for my brother-in-law who is having a hard time with my husband's mother going into the nursing home. I think this Chicken Soup book would really help my brother-in-law, especially after his first Christmas without my mother-in-law. I liked Two Monkeys & a Washtub on FB as well as Chicken Soup for the Soul. I also subscribed by email/RSS feed, followed monkeyswashtub and chicken soup for the soul on twitter. I hope to win so I can get this book for my brother-in-law.

I would love to read this book. We live far from both sides of family & don't get to see them very often. I have twins with special needs-who know we celebrate Jesus' birthday that day. I could use some inspirational reading. Thanks
