Can ya'll give me some suggestions re: short stories to read aloud
Advertisements [?]
on Xmas Eve with family...that aren't religious...

I have two ideas so far: "The Night the Bed Fell" by James Thurber and one that is kinda Christmassy but not in a super religious way, "The Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry.

They need to be short, short stories. Or they could be humorous non-fiction. Last year we served the meal that Julia Child describes as her first meal in France (right down to the wine selection!) and my dtr read the passage in her book where she describes each course. It was nice and a LOT of fun!

You guys are terrific sources, so I know you'll come up with some great suggestions!

And, THANKS!!!
