Christmas Stories Christmas Songs features Brian Evans and Peter Billingsley performing a number of holiday-themed literary works. Billingsley, best known as Ralphie in The Christmas Story, reads a number of short Christmas stories here: Robert Barry's "Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree," Cynthia Rylant's "Silver Packages," and Clement Clark Moore's "The Night Before Christmas." In addition, there are a few songs here that work as narratives: "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "White Christmas," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," and "Silent Night" being the more notable. Overall, a great collection for anyone looking for a holiday album with a heavy literary slant.
