Top 10 Christmas Reads

Have a Christmas mood in November? I am one of these people, I put my Christmas tree right after Halloween and take it down closer to March :). Christmas and New Year have such an atmosphere, warm, cozy, and heartwarming, my favourite holiday season. Unfortunately, I haven’t read that many Christmas-themed books (compared to my other reads at least) but I still have an amazing list to share with you all which I hope you will enjoy! And we will start with “A Christmas Carol”..:

  1. “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens: A classic that beautifully captures the transformative power of the holiday season. As the story follows the transformation of Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly and cold-hearted man, on Christmas Eve. Through ghostly visits, he learns the true meaning of Christmas, embracing generosity, kindness, and the joy of giving, making it a story about the power of compassion.
  2. “The Polar Express” by Chris Van Allsburg: A heartwarming children’s book crafted around a magical tale of belief and wonder. This enchanting book follows a young boy’s magical journey aboard a mysterious train, the Polar Express, to the North Pole on Christmas Eve.
  3. “The Gift of the Magi” by O. Henry: A very touching story about a couple, revolving around the themes of love and sacrifice. They each make a significant sacrifice to buy a Christmas gift for the other, unknowingly giving up their most loved possessions, highlighting the depth of their love and selflessness. (Some people find this one amusing, I think it’s cute).
  4. “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” by Barbara Robinson: A heartwarming and humorous story about the unruly Herdman children, who join a church’s Christmas pageant and end up unexpectedly teaching the congregation the true meaning of Christmas.
  5. “Holidays on Ice” by David Sedaris: A collection of funny stories that offer a unique perspective on the joys and challenges of this holiday season. Filled with anecdotes, family traditions and more!

These books in my opinion perfectly capture the meaning and atmosphere of Christmas through different lenses, from classic stories to heartwarming ones, ensuring a delightful reading experience during the holiday season.
