Christmas stories by Louisa May Alcott

I need your help! Here is one area of Louisa’s writing that I am not familiar with. Can you recommend to me Christmas stories that Louisa has written? Seems like a nice way to prepare for the Christmas season. 🙂

  1. Hi, I’m an Alcott fan who came over from Sheila O’Malley’s. . . a couple of years ago, my mom found “The Quiet Little Woman: A Christmas Story.” It’s a collection of three stories (the title one, “Tilly’s Christmas,” and “Rosa’s Tale”) that appeared in magazines and were republished.

    I hope that’s helpful. 🙂

  2. I’m getting ready to order Louisa May Alcott’s Christmas Treasury from Amazon. It is comprised of a total of 18 stories including A Quiet Little Woman, Kate’s Choice, and What Love Can Do. I’ve never read any of them (that I know of) so this will be a holiday first for me.

  3. I wish I had found your blog earlier! It’s a little late now, but here are a few LMA-related Christmas stories. I haven’t had a chance to read all of them yet.

    Wow, that list ended up much longer than I expected, and I still feel like I’ve forgotten a couple. Enjoy!

    1. Welcome! I’m sorry to have been slow in replying – I’ve been taking a break from the internet over Christmas. Awesome suggestions, thank you, and great tip regarding that last website.
