One of five beloved Christmas classics A Merry Christmas collects the treasured holiday tales of Louisa May Alcott, from the dearly familiar Yuletide benevolence of Marmee and her “little women” to the timeless “What Love Can Do,” wherein the residents of a boarding house come together to make a lovely Christmas for two poor girls. Wildly popular at the time of their publication—readers deluged Alcott with letters demanding sequels—and drawing on Alcott’s family and experiences in the abolitionist and women’s suffrage movements, these stories have the authentic texture and detail of Christmas in nineteenth-century America, while their emphasis on generosity and charity make them timeless embodiments of the Christmas spirit. Penguin Christmas Classics Give the gift of literature this Christmas. Penguin Christmas Classics honor the power of literature to keep on giving through the ages. The five volumes in the series are not only our most beloved Christmas tales, they also have given us much of what we love about the holiday itself. A Christmas Carol revived in Victorian England such Christmas hallmarks as the Christmas tree, holiday cards, and caroling. The Yuletide yarns of Anthony Trollope popularized throughout the British Empire and around the world the trappings of Christmas in London. The holiday tales of Louisa May Alcott shaped the ideal of an American Christmas. The Night Before Christmas brought forth some of our earliest Christmas traditions as passed down through folk tales. And The Nutcracker inspired the most famous ballet in history, one seen by millions in the twilight of every year.

Many great writers are defined and remembered by one piece of work that embeds itself into the culture and continues to be enjoyed by every generation since its publication. For Louisa May Alcott it was the brilliant book, Little Women. She was born in 1832, in Germantown, Pennsylvania, into an educationally progressive but poor family who were Transcendentalists. She received part of her lessons from distinguished family friends such as Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne. These influences on the young Louisa together with her early working life as seamstress, teacher, governess, domestic helper provided much of the material for her later novels. During the Civil War she worked as a nurse. The letters she wrote home from Georgetown DC were later published and brought sufficient recognition to continue writing not only her passionate novels under the nom de plume A.M. Barnard but also her beloved children's stories. However, by 1868 she received greater success with critics and audiences with the publication of the first part of the semi autobiographical, Little Women, and despite ill health continued to write until her death at the age of 55. Alcott was also a poet and a short story writer and here we have gathered together some of those Christmas stories which present her in a very different light and showcase a breadth of talent and experience that still delights to this very day
