About the Story

Christmas Eve is a dazzling, special time...especially when your family's favorite Christmas tree ornament has magic powers! On one enchanted Christmas Eve, Victoria, Joseph, and John gather around the fireplace to hear their father’s story about this favorite Christmas ornament. After their parents go to bed, the children discover the true magic of the ornament as it sweeps them from their home and directly into Santa’s workshop!

Start a new old-fashioned Christmas tradition around your family tree this year!

The Magic Christmas Ornament—a full-color illustrated story book together with a beautifully hand-crafted glass ornament—completely capture the joy and enchantment of the season. Whatever your time-honored Christmas rituals, reading this story aloud as your children gather round will spark their imagination and remind them of the true meaning of Santa Claus.

The Magic Christmas Ornament is a perfect complement to your annual reading of The Polar Express or The Night Before Christmas, with the added bonus of an ornament to put on the tree when the story is done. More than gifts and wrappings, Christmas is magic, a time of sharing and wonder for families everywhere. The Magic Christmas Ornament is the perfect expression of the true Christmas spirit.
