A Vintage Christmas is a charming and timeless collection of stories and poems from classic authors.

A great collection of lesser known classic short stories and poems. I liked some better than others, but that's expected with anthologies.

I loved "Aunt Cyrilla's Basket" and "A Christmas Dinner" so much! And the other stories were quite charming. I also LOVED the poetry section!

This was a fun collection of Christmas stories and poems from long ago. I didn't get through all of them but I plan to dig this book out every Christmas to read snippets from.
