As titled, this book contains several of Henry van Dyke's Christmas stories. All of the stories are enjoyable to read, but two stand out. "The Story of the Other Wise Man" is a book that everyone should read, and periodically reread. I had expected it to last for 3 sittings, but Dad wanted to hear the end! This is a very special book for him, since he knew Henry van Dyke when he was in high school around 1930.

We settled on The Mansion by Henry Van Dyke, a Christian short story about a wealthy man who has a life-changing dream, much as Ebeneezer Scrooge did in Dicken’s classic. In The Mansion, however, the main character is not a grinch being greedy. John Weightman is a very generous man, having donated to charities such as hospitals and orphanages throughout his life. My book group enjoyed discussing the ways in which we can adjust our attitudes toward giving; are we giving for that Christmas morning reaction? are we giving for worldly recognition? What does it mean to give selflessly?
