    1. It is my heart-warming and world-embracing Christmas hope and aspiration that all of us, the high, the low, the rich, the poor, the admired, the despised, the loved, the hated, the civilized, the savage (every man and brother of us all throughout the whole earth), may eventually be gathered together in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss, except the inventor of the telephone.I was pleased to find A Mark Twain Christmas in my stocking on Christmas morning – a small volume, well-sui [...]

    2. Interesting little book with three short stories about Christmas. Contains some nice history data I had not known before. Enjoyed this short read, that is also a love story.

    3. I have some small amount of obsession with Twain - his wit, wordplay, and responses are remarkable even given the passage of time, so finding this thin volume, I picked it up readily and am the better for having done so. This work presents snippets from Twain's letters, reflections from his daughter, and so forth all addressing the loving season of the holiday. While it does deal innately with three different times, the reader readily sees Twain being, well, Twain - quick to point out the foible [...]

    4. Short, very well written and educational book about Mark Twain and his family at Christmas seasons in their history.

    5. With the holidays coming up, I though this book would inspire me--I love Mark Twain and thought I could incorporate his Christmas traditions into my family. It wasn't as much like that as I thought it would be, though. It turns out, Mark Twain was quite a prankster, as you learn in the first story, The Elephant in the Room. This is not really surprising given his gift for humor. In Santa's Footprint, you learn that Twain went to great lengths to make Christmas special and memorable for his famil [...]

    6. Not what I expected at all. I expected this to be a funny little book with some Christmas stories by Twain and about Twain-- a light, funny, holiday read to share with my kids. It was much more biographical than I expected and while I only read the first third or so, there was only one short funny story in it (The Elephant in the Room). Even that was more grin than chuckle If you are looking for a book that tells about how Twain celebrated Christmas: where, with whom etc. then this is the book f [...]

    7. A Mark Twain Christmas is a remarkable book. I appreciate the extent that the author went to capture the essence of what a Christmas was like in the Clemens family household. We learn so much about Mark Twain just by looking at these three very different holiday seasons. I also enjoyed the fact that this book reveals more than just a literary genius in Samuel Clemens- but an honorable family man, a giving and generous community member, and someone who appreciated the finer things in life. It's a [...]

    8. A wonderful storyry human to the core, with feeling and a heart of it's own. It is a small glimpse into the life of Mark Twain with focus on Christmas, but is a story of so much more. It is about family, and love , and humord a grand example of why we each should take time to show love to those we hold dear , but also, to our fellow man.

    9. Interesting look at Mark Twain's Christmas traditions, and a glimpse into his family life. He dearly loved his wife Livy and their three daughters and lavished his love on them especially at Christmas. He was an amazing author and satirist, but his personal life was not devoid of pain and sorrow. This was a heartfelt look into his personal life.

    10. You will wish you had been born into the Clemens family when you read this sweet, short remembrance. Twain's love & celebration of Christmas, family, charity, and good cheer may only be rivaled by Dickens. All the happiness goes hand-in-hand with great heartbreak. Without it, we wouldn't be reminded how important it is to celebrate what we have.

    11. I originally picked this up as a potential stocking stuffer ( a collectable, light, feel good book). It's an interesting look at 3 of Clemens family Christmas seasons. It packs a lot of information in a small book.

    12. Three short stories that are light hearted and informative about the Clemens family. Would make a good stocking stuffer.
