Christmas Gift!

Christmas Gift!, a master storyteller's moving personal reminiscence, discovers the very essence of the holiday season. Interweaving his memories of boyhood Christmases in the dark days of the Depression and the details of present-day holidays with his grandchildren, Ferrol Sams demonstrates the deep, inescapable role of rituals in our lives and the importance of passing them on to each succeeding generation. Rich with details as true today as they were more than a half-century ago when Sams was growing up, Christmas Gift! is a grandfather's loving preservation of an important ritual of his childhood. Strapped for material resources adequate to their generous spirits, members of the Sams household would greet each other with the joyous cry of "Christmas gift!" in order to share the tidings of the season and celebrate their connection. Sams is in rare form in this tale that will warm hearts, create laughter and tears, and earn a place in the center of Christmas celebrations for years to

    Having been born and raised in the South, this book brought home memories of my own Christmases in the South. I could assign my own family member’s names to his female family! I have to read this book every Christmas or something is missing from my celebration!

    Sams weaves a marvelous tapestry of time and place, family and traditions, childhood dreams and aged wisdom into a beautiful story of Christmastime in rural Georgia. His poetic style is as riveting and splendid as the story itself.

    Each year, at Thanksgiving or near Christmas, we drive to a nearby town for the celebration of a family holiday. We take this audiotape with us. And after many years, it remains fresh and new. Ferrol Sams has not only the magic gift of story-telling, he also IS a storyteller. This is priceless.
