08:13 pm: Miracle and Other Christmas Stories by Connie Willis
A lot of these stories were in Asimov's, so I wasn't surprised when I recognized them. Then I read "Cat's Paw," which ISFDB says is new, and I know I've read it before. So I thought maybe the movers had gotten the collection mixed up with the new books and I just didn't remember reading it. That happens, but this is pretty new -- 2000. Last night I read the last story, which is also new, and I don't remember reading it. I dunno.

I think Connie Willis writes best at the shorter lengths and these stories, even the two religious ones, are beautifully written and fun to read. I particularly like the two that take place partly in offices, since the offices are so similar to where I worked back when I worked. I think this is a great book to read, even if you're not a Christian.
