Reviewed by Cheryl E. Rodriguez for Readers' Favorite Twenty-One Candles by Mike Mason is a collection of Christmas short stories. For over three decades, Mr. Mason wrote a new Christmas story to give out to his friends as a greeting card. These tales are fictional, but read as pleasant or painful realities. Held within each chapter is a profound truth, encompassed by the essence of Christmas. Twenty-One Candles beckons you to discover joyful secrets of the season. Christmas is a “sacrament in which believers and unbelievers share alike.” The reason for the season is paradoxical and individual; it represents something different yet somehow the same for those who embrace its spirit. This collection will challenge your “bah humbug” state of mind, and elevate you into jubilation. Christ is born! Hallelujah! Sit down, get cozy and take in these appetizing stories of Christmas. Mike Mason pens Twenty-One Candles with candid expressions of thought, a touch of whimsy, and joyful adventure. Each of the twenty-one chapters is like unwrapping a one-of-a-kind gift; new tones and plots, time settings of old and contemporary, diverse landscapes of solemn serenity and heartbreaking truth, and characters that breach your heart and soul, revealing a fresh perspective. These stories overflow with delicate and decisive metaphors that open your mind to wonder, maybe even to ask, “what do you mean?” I loved “Yaabba-ka-doodles!” and could totally relate to “Christmas Rocks.” You are guaranteed to experience tears and delightful childlike emotions. After all, isn’t that what Christmas is all about – divine truth and wonder. Although personally touching, these treasures should be re-gifted; these stories are meant to be shared.
