Olde-Time Christmas Stories

Illustrated classics for hours of wholesome pleasure

Yule Be Merry when you curl up near the fire with a cup of wassail or hot cider and enjoy the “Olde-Time Christmas” stories I’ve collected for you.

Read them yourself.  Share them with your children or grandchildren.  These home-spun stories are perfect for all ages!

I offer them here because very few of these stories are still in print.  They’re not easy to find.

Another reason I share these treasures I’ve found is because I love to read stories about Christmas.  Reading heart-warming tales enriches my Christmas spirit. It deepens my enjoyment of the season.

I hope you experience the same pleasures as you read these stories.

Who wrote these tales of days gone by?  Authors of the illustrated stories include Howells, Yoder, Garland, Dodge, O. Henry, Stringer, Lane, Henderson and others.

Want even more Christmas fun?

There’s no doubt in my mind that you’ll thoroughly delight at reading the stories I’ve gathered for you.

But why stop there?  Why not fill even more of your holiday season with several home-spun activities?

Here’s the other special treat for you: A collection of over 55 activities.

  • Test your knowledge of the true meaning of Christmas with these questions (and yes, I share the answers to this quiz), from the Bible and the Christmas story

All this – along with the 15 stories – is yours with the “premium option” shown below in the table.  That’s my special treat for you.

And if you only want the stories you can order them separately (however, the activities can ONLY be purchased with the stories in the premium option).

What about quality?

We all want some assurance of quality before we order a product.  Please let this website be your guide regarding the quality of what you order.

What do I mean?  I sincerely hope you like what you’ve found here on YuleBeMerry.  I hope you think the content I’ve shared with you is worth your time to read and of very good quality.

If you like what you see here, know that the stories and activities are more of the same.  The only difference is that I’ve formatted them into PDF files for instant download and enjoyment.  By the way, I’ve broken them up into smaller files instead of one HUGE file.  I know that many people don’t have high-speed Internet access so the smaller files will be easier and faster to download.

The table below summarizes the Christmas cheer I’m offering you.

You have a choice of ordering the 15 stories by themselves . . . or the special treat premium option that has the stories plus over 55 activities.   Both options come in PDF electronic file format for instant download.
