    I've read this book several times--it's my holiday favorite. We're reading a story each night (after scriptures and prayers) leading up to Christmas Eve. My favorite story is about Joseph Smith dressing up as Santa Claus and delivering popcorn balls and candy canes to the kids in Nauvoo. Then afterwards, he joined the other saints for a barn dance at Heber C. Kimball's place, followed by a stick pull contest.
