Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, how did we fly through the year quicker than Santa’s reindeer! It’s absolutely bonkers. In light of Christmas Eve I have a few books that will easily get you into the Christmas spirit.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas – Dr Seuss
I seem to mention How The Grinch Stole Christmas in every blog this Grinchmas . . . I mean Christmas. That’s because to me it is the perfect holiday read. I sympathise with the Grinch just wanting to live in his cave with his dog and his hobbies. He does learn the meaning of Christmas and all that as well
Hogfather – Terry Pratchett
Death as Santa, what more could you want! Hogfather will make you laugh from the first with Terry Pratchett’s awesome writing and make you feel every emotion. There is just something so fun about the Hogfather that I can’t help but love it.
The Boy Called Christmas – Matt Haig
A Boy Called Christmas is a book I only read this Winter but it has immediately became one of my favourite Christmas stories. Matt Haig was able to have me feel every emotion and I loved that there was little hints about Christmas’ future occupation. I’ve since read The Girl Who Saved Christmas and loved it just as much!
A Christmas Carol
I just finished reading A Christmas Carol yesterday and loved it. I’m not a huge fan of classics and find it hard to get into them but it was so easy to get lost in Scrooge’s world. I was surprised by just how much emotion I felt towards Scrooge and how I wanted him to change. This is the perfect Christmas Eve book as it reminds you to spread joy to everyone at Christmas time.
These are all my favourite Christmas reads, all of them are heartwarming in their own way. All have my favourite blend of emotions with humour and leave you feel light and happy!
