What are your favorite Christmas books? The one pictured above is truly a classic. Even people who have not read the book seem to know the story because it is referred to in so many instances.
Libraries usually have big displays in December of Christmas books--ones that tell the religious significance and others that deal with the whimsical, fun commercialized end of this holiday.
Bookstores also feature holiday books for buying. What a nice gift to give someone in hopes they'll curl up with the book late on Christmas Day to top off their holiday celebration.
There are myriad holiday cookbooks to choose from, as well. If I received one of these, I'd hope it was early in the month so I could try out the most appealing recipes.
This is a short list of some of the favorite Christmas books or stories. Many,you'll note, are children's books. Guess what? We adults enjoy them, as well, and we're delighted when we have a child we can read these special stories to. You can google to find other favorite Christmas stories.
