There are stories of joyful family reunions, reconciliations, and renewals of the spirit. Some speak of the pain of those who are excluded or exclude themselves from the celebration; others are filled with the bitter ironies of those who betray the meaning of the season. Finally, there are stories about those whose holiday is not Christmas and for
whom the season is a curious or threatening

Written by artists whose literary craft is exceptional and whose imaginations are visionary, these rich and insightful stories will continue to reward
on repeated readings.
