    "The Night Before Christmas used to and probably still is, a tradition in many families that is read aloud on Christmas Eve. I think most people are familiar with the line, "not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." I remember first hearing the poem as a school child, I think we even had a play based on it at some point. It's a great, classic poem that will likely stand the test of time"

    "I never felt that Little Women was a Christmas tale, although it has been a long time since I've read it. I always saw it as a teenage/coming of age tale about some girls dealing with societal gender expectations. It's not a bad read. Perhaps something to read over a Christmas break from school."

    "If you are looking for a good book about Christmas then "Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned" is not for you. This book takes place in a winter setting, but has little to do with Christmas. It would not be a good choice if you were looking for a warm fuzzy feeling book about the joy of Christmas."

    "We all know that Christmas has become a retail holiday, and this book helps explain how it came about that way. From an older time, when people would see it as another day to go to church and thank the lord and all that, to a time of merry making and even into gluttony, somewhat, sin or not - until it became the biggest shopping point of the year, regardless of one's religion."
