This was a somewhat odd collection of stories, some of which were only loosely connected to the holiday season or Christmas. The narrator was excellent, though. This includes stories by Charles Dickens (including A Christmas Carol), Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and many others. I enjoyed revisiting some old favorites and hearing some new stories, even the weird ones. A very good listen. The narrator did a fantastic job with A Christmas Carol, especially.
