Kids Christmas Stories
And
Other Holiday Tales



Holidays with children are special times.

Kids Christmas stories and poems, as well as Easter stories, Thanksgiving stories and Halloween stories offer an opportunity to expose our kids to the differences in cultures and traditions of different lands and of different eras.

Every country, every culture, every family has a special tradition or unique way of celebrating their holidays.

Many cultures and traditions remain the same throughout the ages, but many change as time passes. Children enjoy hearing stories of the holiday celebrations and of children from long ago.

Reading children’s Christmas stories such as “The Christmas Carol” or “The Night Before Christmas” are a tradition in many families. Are they your tradition? It’s not too late to start!

I hope you enjoy the many stories and poems we’ve compiled here and maybe one will spark a new tradition in your family celebrations.
