Chicken Soup for the Soul: Merry Christmas! Review

Wow, the forward to this book is written by the one and only Santa Claus. Our latest Chicken Soup book received for review celebrates the holiday season. As the subtitle says, the book is full of 101 joyous holiday stories. As is typical of the series, the stories are spread across ten sections. I don't know what I'll ever do if they ever have nine or eleven sections. 

The sections are as follows:
  1. Tales of the Tree
  2. The Joy of Family
  3. The Perfect Gift
  4. A Different Kind of Christmas
  5. Christmas Spirit is Alive and Well
  6. Holiday Shenanigans
  7. The Joy of Giving
  8. Traditions Worth Sharing
  9. Around the Table
  10. Honoring Memories
What did I think of the content? This is the first Chicken Soup for the Soul book that I saw poetry in it, for a whole story. The stories show the true spirit of Christmas, anywhere from 
childhood memories to stories of snow, volunteering, dinner, and death. They're not all Christmas stories, covering more the holiday season than just Christmas. I do like the single page comics in the book, too. You get the occasional laugh from the eleven comics. It is a book filled with joy. 

I probably like the chapter on giving most. The stories there just evoke that feel good feeling after reading. Your favorite may differ. Any fan of Christmas will enjoy the book, especially so if they're fans of the Chicken Soup series.
