“A Christmas Carol” and “The Gift of the Magi” are great, but sometimes the Christmas spirit needs to be refreshed by something more up-to-date. Christmas short stories by Helena Puumala are just the ticket to recapture Christmas magic, for children and adults.
“Miranda and the Not-Christmas Elf” will be free on Amazon from Dec 24 to Dec 28 (otherwise, it is 99 cents). It’s a short story about a little girl, who is troubled by bullies and family problems between her parents, who needs a little Christmas magic to help her overcome her fears.
