    I love Twas the Night Before Christmas. It brings me back to my childhood every time I hear it! Thanks!!!

  2. says

    I would love to win this! My favorite book is “Skipping Christmas” by John Grisham.
    followed by “Blue Christmas” by Mary Kay Andrews.
    I read “Miracle of 34th Street” this year which the movie did not change much at all!

  3. Julie says

    Twas the Night Before Christmas, hands down! Course that is after the true Christmas story from the Bible!

  4. says

    I don’t really have a most favorite Christmas book but each year, as a tradition, we get a new Christmas book and read it on Christmas Eve.

  5. Linda Peterson says

    I get lots of Christmas books out from the library, not sure that there is a favorite. The last one I read was “The Christmas Wedding” about a surprise wedding on Christmas day.

  6. Brandy Parisi says

    Hands down – it is Charles Dicken’s Christmas Carol. From the time I was a little girl, this story has been a staple in our Christmas celebration! What a wonderful opportunity to “flesh” out one of our most beloved stories.

  7. Tara Larsen says

    This book looks so interesting! I think my favorite Christmas book is A Tale of Three Trees. I’m not sure it’s technically a Christmas book or an Easter book, but either way I love it! :)

    I just finished reading the Christmas Carol by Dickens (for my first time) and my husband told me to follow up with this new Jacob T. Marley book. So I’m excited to read it.

    I don’t have an all-time favorite Christmas book, but I did like the two Christmas Jars books.

    Here is a good quote from the Christmas Carol about how awesome Christmas is:

    “There are many things from which I might have derived good by which I have not profited, I dare say,” returned the nephew, “Christmas among the rest. But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas-time, when it has come round-apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that-as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!”

    Merry Christmas!

    I really love a book my book club read least year for Christmas. It was called “Christmas Jar” and it was really inpsiring and uplifting. It was fabulous.

  10. Catherine A says

    Twas the night before Christmas. My dad read it to me, I read it to my kids now they are reading it to me. Love the tradition.

  19. Lisa says

    I still love Rudolph and Santa Claus..I found old copies of the same ones my parents read to me as a child..and I love reading them to my own children!
    The past few years I make it a habit of choosing a new sweet, sappy, Christmas romance and read it the week before Christmas!

  20. jan says

    There are so many great Christmas books – but if I had to pick just one I think i’d go with A Christmas Carol.

  21. Jenny Hill says

    My favorite Christmas Story is called Saving Santa Clause. It is about a woman whose husband is deployed overseas. She helps Santa and he sends her Husband home for Christmas. LOVE IT!

  22. Sher says

    How the Grinch Stole has to be read on Thanksgiving to officially start the Christmas season.

  25. Lora W. says

    I am a follower and I have always loved reading The Night Before Christmas with my son. We have different illustrated versions. He remembers when he was little, if I was tired I would read it as fast as I could. It always made him laugh.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  26. says

    I follow your blog and my very favorite Christmas book is “Shepherds Why This Jubilee” by Jeffrey R Holland. HAVE to read it every year.

  27. Lindsay F says

    Mine is a recent favorite, Humphries First Christmas. Beautiful pictures and such a great message! Thanks

  28. Linda E says

    My favorite Christmas book is the orginal Night Before Christmas. I read this to my grandchildren every Christmas Eve as I did for their parents. It is a family tradition I very much enjoy.

  29. says

    I have a few favorite holiday stories! That said, choosing a favorite would be quite difficult. I guess I can narrow it down to 3, though: (1) Twas the Night Before Christmas, (2) The Little Match Girl, and (3) A Christmas Carol. Then, of course, as Nancy said, the greatest story of all *does* come from the Bible :)

  30. says

    I don’t know if I have a favorite. I love Christmas Jars. (And I hope I didn’t miss the giveaway. I’ve really been wanting this book so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!)
