Christmas Stories from Georgia

Reviewed by Allen Hott

This is quite a group of short stories, written by Southern writers, including Margaret Mitchell, Ferrol Sams, Joel Chandler Harris, and others. All of the stories in one way or another revolve around Christmas.

The one by Margaret Mitchell is actually a chapter from Gone With the Wind wherein Scarlett realizes just how much she really loved Ashley when he had come home on a short Christmas leave to be with his wife. Mitchell’s writing has always been a thing of beauty and interesting to read as she manages to get feelings across no matter what the story.

Another story tells of the nights before Christmas in a small drug store as one of the workers describes the various other workers’ methods of getting ready for the holiday while each doing less and less work but all enjoying the on-goings of their fellow employees.
