I’m not generally a Christmas novel fan, but The Paper Bag Christmas by Kevin Alan Milne is probably the most endearing and meaningful story about giving that I have ever read. Whether you are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, or an atheist you can appreciate the humor and pathos contained in this story. It’s a good read to start the holiday season.
