Just in time for the holidays: a collection of beloved Christmas stories and writings that every family will cherish.

One of the many joys of Christmas comes from the traditions associated with it. Bestselling author Caroline Kennedy drew on her own family’s traditions to create this charming collection of favorite stories, poems, and writings that celebrate the holiday spirit.

In addition to excerpts and full texts of contemporary and classic writings, A Family Christmas features a letter Caroline Kennedy herself wrote to Santa Claus as well as a letter written to President Kennedy from a little girl concerned about Santa Claus. The introduction, written and read by Caroline, relates the importance of the holiday to her family, and shares how the literature in this collection is an essential part of her own tradition.

This warm and personal collection will delight all who make it a part of their own family Christmas.

Praise For A Family Christmas

“If your inner Grinch still awaits transformation, look no further than Caroline Kennedy's A Family Christmas, perhaps the best compendium of holiday literature and music to ever cross this audiophile's desk. . . . this is the real deal: classic stories and favorite carols juxtaposed against witty modern essays from writers known for sentiment and not sentimentality.”
— Rochelle O'Gorman, The Plain Dealer

“The recording succeeds in its stated aim, which is to enrich your heart and mind with the spirit of Christmas.”
—Winston-Salem Journal
