Chicken Soup For The Soul - Christmas Magic Review and Giveaway!


     Christmas can be a magical as well as stressful time of year.  For me it's become more exciting again now that I have one child and another on the way.  Something about the looks on their little faces Christmas morning makes all the stress worth it.   

     Christmas Magic has 101 inspirational stories about Christmas.  Some stories are happy and others can be a little sad but they're all heart warming.  I enjoyed reading little bits about how other families spend or have spent their Christmases.  Everyone seems to have their own little traditions and ways of doing things.  I loved that the stories were only a few pages long so this allowed me to read a story or two then put the book down until I had another little bit of time.  When my son is a little older I'd love to read some of the stories to him.  

     This book would make a great gift for anyone who loves Christmas or the Chicken Soup for The Soul books.  They're available at most big online retailers and book stores such as chapters.ca or the Chicken Soup for The Soul website. 

Now for the giveaway!  Three lucky readers will win a copy of Chicken Soup for The Soul - Christmas Magic.  A little late for the season that passed us by but great for many Christmases to come!  To enter just leave a comment why you want to win this book and don't forget to leave me an email address.  Open to Canada and the US and ends on Jan 17th.   For extra entries:

1.  Follow me with GFC and comment that you did
2.  Like Chicken Soup For The Soul on facebook and comment that you did
