KIRKUS REVIEW

A thoroughly warming selection of short stories, verse, old and new and true, should add to the seasonal glow and provides a nice balance of sentiment and humor. There's John D. MacDonald's attempt to introduce a ""nice new fashioned Christmas""; Dale Eunson's well-remembered The Day They Gave Babies Away: an excerpt from Lincoln Steffens' autobiography, and Lynne Lofting's recollection of her famous father Hugh; Heywood Broun's Frankincense and Myrrh, Sally Benson with a Judy Graves' story, Jerome Weidman, Bob Considine, and the verse of Ogden Nash, Dorothy Parker, and of course Clement Moore. Not to forget that most famous of favorities- Dickens' Christmas Carol. An assured choice with an enduring appeal.
