Best Christmas Books

It's the most wonderful time of the year! My favorite holiday season is Christmas! I don't go so much for the hustle and bustle, but I love the scents, sounds and sights. I believe that people treat one another better during the holidays and most are filled with good cheer.  If you are not yet in the mood for the holidays perhaps a beautiful Christmas story will fill your heart with love.

Here are a mix of new wonderful Christmas stories and a few classic Christmas stories which everyone knows and loves.  I still sit  and read these classic Christmas tales with my children, although they are getting older some stories are just too good to be read once and done.  I hope you'll take a few minutes of your time this holiday season and read a wonderful Christmas story with the ones you love.
