I gave this book to my father years ago when I first read it. It crosses and unites generations. I try to read it every Christmas even though the last few years ( and especially this year) it brings me to tears missing my family that have passed on. Having lost Mom to cancer this past January, I know it will really be bittersweet next Christmas when I unpack it.

I have always loved every word that Ferrol Sams ever wrote, and this is no exception. He will make you laugh, he will make your heart sing, he will remind you of what's important in life. Always worth the time. Add this to your Christmas-time repertoire. You won't be disappointed.
Christmas Gift! by Ferrol Sams (Delta 1989)(Fiction). One of the all-time best Southern storytellers regales us with a slim volume of Christmas memories. The title refers to the Southern tradition of greeting friends and family n Christmas Eve with the salutation "Christmas Gift!" Whoever says it first is entitled to receive a gift from the other! My rating: 8/10, finished 1992.
Recommended to me by a friend, I loved this book. I could not put it down and read the entire 90-or-so pages in 2 days. This book is a wonderful reminder of what Christmas is all about. Since reading this book, I am hooked on books by Ferrol Sams. I think he is an amazing author.
