Years ago, as a little child, going downtown at Christmas time in a big city was an exciting, magical holiday tradition. This was when you fought crowds in the department stores to get just the perfect Christmas gifts. Nobody during the 1950's could have ever imagined that shopping downtown and in malls would one day evolve to sitting in front of a computer screen and ordering online. I wanted to share the the magic of Christmas Past with those old enough to remember it as well those too young to realize what they missed.

The Christmas StoriesThe Christmas Stories



These are the subjects of The Christmas Stories. The author has been asked which of the stories are true. His answer is there is truth in all of them. Not facts per se, the stories focus on human truths that we never question.

The Christmas Stories is a collection of ten stories written and read aloud by the author to the congregation of St Stephen Lutheran Church in White Bear Lake, Minnesota at Christmas time. The stories are based on the author's own personal Christmas memories and imagination, as well as stories he has gathered from others. Each story highlights a particular defining aspect of Christmas, such as the joy of going home at Christmas, or the magical wonder that is felt on Christmas Eve, or the agony children experience waiting for Santa Claus to arrive. In addition to celebrating the traditions of the season, the stories are intended for personal reflection, evoking in the readers their own memories. The stories are illustrated by the author's pen-and-ink drawings. We all remember how old we were and how it was that Santa's real identity was revealed to us. And we have memories of family, gifts, friends, church programs, and homeward travels that have become the stories we tell over and over and intend to pass down to our children and their children. These are the subjects of The Christmas Stories. The author has been asked which of the stories are true. His answer is there is truth in all of them. Not facts per se, the stories focus on human truths that we never question. For example, we know that every year we go home for Christmas, even if it's just a journey of the heart. And children agonize having to wait one slow day at a time for Christmas to arrive, while adults embrace the wait and even give it a name-advent-and celebrate it as a separate event of its own. And the peace of Christmas is more meaningful to those in uniform whose job is to preserve it, in part because they alone know what a high price it extracts. These are the truths that become the subjects of the stories of The Christmas Stories. Ted Field is a full-time civil engineer and a part-time writer. He enjoys singing on Sundays in the senior choir at St Stephen Lutheran Church in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, which has given him the opportunity to write the Christmas stories in this collection. Every year as part of the choir's Christmas service he reads the stories aloud to the St Stephen congregation. Ted is the author of The Well: An Enviro-Thriller, a mystery novel about a plot to contaminate the water supply of a small town, and is currently working on his next book, An Ordinary Life in Extraordinary Times, a personal remembrance of growing up as a baby boomer. As the principal artist of Have Pen Will Draw, he creates cartoons, watercolors, and handmade greeting cards. He lives in Minnesota with his wife and two children.

Madonna Dries Christensen’s poignant memoir, In Her Shoes, is a superb model for the preservation of personal family memories. Anyone who wishes to record his or her own family history should read this book first. With precise writing and awe-inspiring photos, Madonna has created a cherished keepsake for her immediate family as well as for posterity. As she aptly states in this memorable memoir: “We become who we are because of who we were; a culmination of the momentous and the minutiae.” —E. P. Ned Burke, author of seven novels and editor of Yesterday’s Magazette and Writer’s Magazette This beautiful collection of stories creates, piece-by-loving-piece, the picture of a life well and richly lived. Madonna turns something as small as her first sip of Coca-Cola into a sensual drama and a morality play! After you read the final story, about the death of her beloved mother, you’ll want to hug your loved ones to you and tell them you love them. —Marshall Cook, an emeritus professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is the author of 30 books. He edits a free online newsletter for writers called Extra Innings ( www.dcs.wisc.edu/lsa/writing/extrainnings ). This tender and skillful tribute to her mother by Madonna Dries Christensen will certainly be treasured by her extended family for its careful curation of dear family history. The rest of us will enjoy the lively stories and nod in recognition of characters who have their counterparts in our own families. With her thoughtful narration and gallery of old photos, the author hopes to inspire others to record family memories while there is time. Enjoy this collection and start your own! —Becky Haigler, editor, Silver Boomer Books, and author of not so GRIMM: gentle fables and cautionary tales.
