Cold seasons are the best time to return to childhood and start rereading our favorite Christmas stories. During the winter holiday season, we are more glad than ever to enjoy tales again. Some of these tales are about children. Others speak of reindeers. Most of them revolve around Christmas and the celebrations that take place during the holiday. We remind you of three great Christmas books that you can enjoy at any age.
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
One of the most famous Christmas books of all times is undoubtedly “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens. It is a classic in children’s literature. The novel tells the story of Ebeneezer Scrooge, a sour old man that hates Christmas and festivities of any kind. In order to give him a chance to redeem his soul, three ghosts visit him on Christmas Eve: the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis
Another famous novel, perfect for any time of the year, but especially during winter is “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”, the second book in the Chronicles of Narnia series. It tells the story of the four Pevensie siblings: Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. While sent to the countryside to be safe from the London Blitz, the four siblings discover a magical wardrobe that takes them to the kingdom of Narnia. There, the White Witch rules and makes sure it is “always Winter, but never Christmas”.
Miracle on 34th Street by Valentine Davies
Just as famous as its fellow Christmas books, “Miracle on 34th street” is perhaps the most popular due to its many TV adaptations. It tells the story of Kris Kringle, an elderly man that is hired by Macy’s to act as Santa Claus. When people hear that Kris Kringle actually thinks that he is Santa Claus, he is committed to an asylum. A court hearing is later necessary to decide whether he is mentally sane or not.
These books are an important part of Christmas celebrations. Sometimes we read them to ourselves. Other times we read them to our children. Do you have other Christmas books that you adore?
