Favourite Christmas Books

For our neighbours to the south, the day after Thanksgiving marks the official start of the Christmas season. So in honour of our American friends, I thought I would do a post about Christmas memories. And since this blog focuses on books… You know where this is going.

One book that makes me pause and leaf through it every time I see it, is The Snowman by Raymond Briggs. I’m always a little sad at the end, but can’t help but get lost in the story again and again.

Another one that recalls my earliest Christmas memories is The Story of Holly & Ivy by Rumer Godden. This book is so heart-warming, that I guarantee you will enjoy it if you haven’t read it. And if you have already read it, I know you will agree.

And so, with that nod to the start of the Christmas Season, once again I put the question to you, my readers. What are your favorite Christmas books? They don’t have to be children’s books, like the ones I just listed, but please do share whatever they are!
