Various Authors: The Curmudgeon’s Own Christmas Book (collected shorts). v1. 07 Dec 2

The Curmudgeon’s Own Christmas Book

A COLLECTION OF POEMS, STORIES, AND ESSAYS TO SATISFY YOUR INNER GRINCH

An assortment of humorous writings for the cynical and hard-of-heart. Satires, spoofs, and just-plain-silliness will elicit grins, chuckles, and more than a few nods of recognition. And, just maybe, a little holiday spirit might slip in and take you by surprise.

Includes the following:
Spoiler:
George A. Baker, Jr. (1849–1906)
On Santa Claus
Irvin S. Cobb (1876–1944)
Holidays
Christmas Presents
Stephen Leacock (1869–1944)
A Christmas Letter
Hoodoo McFiggin’s Christmas
The Errors of Santa Claus
The Christmas Ghost
Christmas Shopping
Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
Editha’s Christmas Burglar
Holiday! Holiday!
Here Come the Children
A Good Old-Fashioned Christmas
A Christmas Pantomime
A Christmas Spectacle
Christmas Afternoon
Home for the Holidays
Damon Runyon (1880–1946)
Holiday Hospitality
Alias Santa Claus
Grandpap And The Yuletide
Dancing Dan’s Christmas
Anne Field (no data found)
The Night After Christmas (verse)
A Christmas Insurrection (verse)
Anonymous
The Newest Thing in Christmas Carols (verse)


=============
This is my own compilation. Texts were obtained from archive.org, hathitrust.org, wikisource.org, gutenberg.org, fadedpage.com.
OCR and printer’s errors were silently corrected; punctuation, diacritics, and italics formatted. Story titles are cross-linked to table of contents. Embedded font used for initial drop-caps.

=============
Bah, humbug!
