Do they have to be about XMas? My personal favorite is not about XMas in any way. Its Age of War by David Robbins.

Considered one of the most dangerous anti-West terrorist groups, the Al-Jabbar ply their lethal trade quietly and efficiently. But now, state-of-the-art intelligence and the interdiction of Mack Bolan have foiled them twice in deadly plots against America.

But the hunt has just begun. On a bloody chase spanning the Middle East, the Aegean and East Africa, they remain one step ahead of Bolan, leading the warrior on a race to circumvent their most monumental act of savagery. They've got a dirty nuke and the means to get it to American soil...striaght to the nation's capital.

Ummm...yeah, I think it should be Christmas related. That's the point.

Having already watched the new animated A Christmas Carol, and still having
A Muppet Christmas Carol to watch tonight, I am already doubly dosed in that Christmas favorite.

Instead I've just started Dickens' The Haunted Man. It was the fifth, and last, of Dickens`Christmas tales according to the back of my Modern Library edition.

Muppet Christmas Carol! My favourite Christmas movie! Wait, this thread is about reading, not movies. Yes, I love the book, too. Especially the beginning line, about a coffin nail being the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade.

Another Christmas story I love is "A Child's Christmas in Wales", by Dylan Thomas. Now I have to go see if I can get that on my kobo somehow...

Blackadder Christmas Carol? Not quite suitable for the small children in the family but a great watch.

Funny that this thread came up, I coincidently finished reading A Christmas Carol earlier today, first time I have read it (and my first Dickens novel). So I will have to say overall that A Christmas Carol is my favourite christmas read (ignoring the fact that is has been my only christmas read ever )

"The Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry. Short, to the point, and brings a lump to my throat each time I read it.

I can't find it on here in ePub format, but it is available in Mobi and other formats.

Don't believe your novels please. Muslims are not anti-West.

Oh, another favourite Christmas read of mine is Agatha Christie's "The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding", where Hercule Poirot "gets" to spend Christmas in a country house and finds in his plum pudding- well, I won't tell you what; don't want to spoil the story.

And I'm reading "Rumpole at Christmas" right now, by John Mortimer. Good old Rumpole, and his glass (or two, or three) of Chateau Thames Embankment...
