Merry Christmas 2010: A Stephenie Meyer Short Story


Remember fall 2006? New Moon had only just been published. There was no movie.  There was no wild buzz in every corner of the Internet. There was no official release date with in-store midnight parties. There were just two books in a series.

Stephenie Meyer wrote an article for Ensign Magazine, the magazine of the LDS church, about the spirit of Christmas. It has become the Lexicon’s traditional Christmas post.

A very Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year to you and your families.

  1. Oh my. I have not read that before. It is so sweet and brought tears to my eyes. I am really glad that it is something you guys annually post. (I only started visiting Lexicon this year.) Thank you for sharing that very heartwarming reminder of what the season means. 🙂

  2. I’ve never read this before, thanks so much for posting this!

    So beautiful, I am in tears. Thank you Stephenie & Twilight Lexicon for posting this.

  5. I am sure i have read this before but i forgot. It was just wow. I have tears in my eyes. Thank you To the Lexicon and Stephine for the little Christmas Reminder. Was a great story to read!

    Merry Christmas Twilighters!

  6. Such a great reminder! I have read this before but it was a few years back. Thanks for posting! Merry Christmas!!!

  7. Oh dammit, I cried even though I tried not to. I look forward to the time I can afford to do this kind of thing. I’m still struggling myself, but the one thing I managed to do this year is be able to afford presents for my young nieces, which I couldn’t afford to do last year. I am grateful to finally be employed after 3 years of not being employed, and grateful to help others when I can. In the meantime, I just hope to make someone smile, or bring hope where there might have been none. God bless us all at Christmas, and all year long.

  8. Thank you,Lexicon for your comment about this article and for posting it. I didn’t know it was a Lex tradition.
