Book review: Louisa May Alcott's Christmas Treasury

    Some of the best reading of childhood comes from Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, Little Men and the following books. I fondly remember these books, which I frequently re-read as a child.  The movies were so pleasant, too!  If you haven't watched them with your little ones, they might be good ones for the holiday vacation.

What's your favorite Christmas or Hannukah movie or book?

What's your favorite movie or book to watch at the holidays?  There are so many to choose from these days!  For many years (read decades) my favorite was White Christmas.  I can quote the lines and sing all the songs.  Lately, though, I haven't watched every single year.  Time for a new favorite?  I'm open for suggestions!
