A present to yourself: Louisa May Alcott’s Christmas stories
To paraphrase a famous line, “Christmas won’t be Christmas without any stories!”
Louisa’s stories, that is.
In honor of this magical season, here are all the posts I’ve done on Louisa’s Christmas stories.
Even though work on my research has precluded reading for pleasure for now (not to say that my work isn’t immensely enjoyable),
I will definitely indulge in some Alcott Christmas stories
as a Christmas present to myself.

I will enjoy these links over cups of afternoon tea.
A very merry Christmas to you and a great big thank you for all your work and your posts and you passion in Louisa.
Thank you! The perfect thing to do. I think I’ll settle on the couch with my cats and read these stories again.
Thanks for the list. I saw a new Christmas anthology at Orchard House but the stories were all included in previous compilations, which I already owned. I didn’t buy any books in Concord this year 😦 The Witch’s Curse is not out yet and the staff at Orchard House didn’t know about it. They do now! 😀
Good for you! Do you suppose we’ll ever get to the point where there is nothing left to buy? Never! 🙂
Thanks for sharing! I need to read these!
How wonderful, thanks so much for giving these little stories to us, Susan! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas full of blessings!
Thank you, and a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!
