Proving, perhaps, that too much is never enough, editors Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen serve up the latest course in their inspirational and ubiquitous food-for-the-spirit series with Chicken Soup for the Soul Christmas Treasury: Holiday Stories to Warm the Heart. It's a mixed bag O. Henry's "Gift of the Magi" follows a man's rumination on Santa Claus as a metaphor for God, filial love, or both but familiar fare nonetheless, and the treacly sweet stories about the true meaning of Christmas promise to be gobbled up by thousands as they stand in the gift-wrap line.

From the Back Cover
Christmas is truly a magical time of the year. The smell of fresh pine fills the air, the taste of hot apple cider tantalizes our taste buds and sparkling lights brighten our homes. Yet despite these sensory sensations, it is the thing we cannot see or smell or taste or touch that affects us most deeply: the spirit of love and giving that is the true meaning of Christmas.
Now you can foster this holiday spirit with those you love, by sharing with them the first-ever Chicken Soup for the Soul Christmas Treasury, a timeless collection of stories that celebrate the magic of the season. In this special volume, you'll find some of the most treasured gems from previous Chicken Soup books plus a wealth of new stories from real people who share with you their most cherished holiday moments - from the humorous to the hopeful, from the sentimental to the silly, from the memorable to the truly miraculous.
