The Story of the Other Wise Man by Henry Van Dyke



With the exception of THE Christmas Story…this is my favorite Christmas story.

Though it is not a TRUE story, and not TRULY a Christmas story…it is a luminous gem.

I will resist further commentary, but recommend it to one and all. It is a short story, easily read in an hour.

A quotation by Henry Van Dyke, but not part of the story:

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love…time is eternity.
