A Child's Christmas In Wales Comments

Rating: 3.3
One Christmas was so much like another, in those years around the sea-town corner now and out of all sound except the distant speaking of the voices I sometimes hear a moment before sleep, that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or whether it snowed for twelve days and twelve nights when I was six.

This is NOT TOO LONG. But you call this a Short Story about Christmas, A Child's Christmas In Wales - SHORT story by Dylan Thomas. A very interesting read, and it ads a very lot to our general knowledge about the customs of countries. True impressing, my hats off for Dylan Thomas. I am glad to have read this grand piece.

Could you make the poem a bit shorter? Otherwise, it would be perfect for teaching.

Sigh, I was going to comment to support Harley White, but this site limits comments to 300 characters. Can't deal with that.

A Child's Christmas In Wales is one of my all-time favorite works for the Christmas season by that sublime poets' poet Dylan Thomas. I have a recording of him reciting it, which I normally listen to every year. Thank you for posting this!

I found this in a little gift shop in Wales in 1975. I fell in love with it then and love it still.

Extraordinary prose, with language and imagery so evocative one feels one was there, either in a past year or in a numbed consciousness
