I have numerous holiday books I enjoy, ranging from The Best Christmas Pageant Ever to Christmas on Jane Street. Still, none compare to my husband’s reading of the birth of Christ from Luke, chapter 2. Even better than Linus quieting the masses on A Charlie Brown Christmas, Bret has captured the attention of our three children for nearly two decades now. Perhaps the reminder (read: threat) of “No opening presents until we read The Christmas Story” has something to do with that.
Actually, we all love the simplicity of our Lord humbly putting on skin. How can you improve on the greatest story of all time?
