The warmth and tranquility of Christmas is the favorite theme of writers. December is a good time to read classic Christmas literature. I recommend several Christmas-related literary classics for everyone.
Christmas is here, and you can choose to curl up by the fire alone on this wonderful holiday or choose from one of the following favorite Christian books to read with your family for the holidays.
Undoubtedly, reading these books will help you focus on the nature of Christmas and think about the meaning of the holiday. Written by leading Christian authors, these reads include heartwarming Christmas stories and some holiday meditations

11. A Christmas Carol - Dickens
"A Christmas Carol" makes people realize that Christmas is not an objective question of eating goose or turkey, but a subjective question of reflecting on how people—since they are all created by God—should love each other.
A Christmas Carol is a book that popularized the idea of a "generously shared" Christmas, profoundly changing the status and value of modern Christmas in British society.
Rich but mean Scrooge is visited by three Christmas elves on Christmas Eve. Under the leadership of the elf, he saw his poor but happy past, the happy present when his clerks couldn't afford gifts, and the lonely future of his aging self. He realized that Shibina was happier.
The language of this classic is unpretentious and fluent, making it ideal for improving English reading. It is also because of the influence of this book that people began to use turkey as the main meat for Christmas dinners.
12. Hercule Poirot's Christmas -Agatha Christie
For detective fiction lovers, "Christmas Picks" wouldn't be perfect without the work of Agatha Christie. Polo's Christmas Detective is about a family party thrown by the tyrannical multimillionaire Simon.
With many unexpected guests, the orgy turned into a killing, and the house quickly hosted some potential suspects.
Instead of the usual Christmas cheer, this mysterious tale paints a disturbing scene in the home of a malevolent pornographer.
For Detective Poirot, this Christmas is not a holiday, because secrets must be revealed. Full of bizarre and unexpected plots.

20. The Christmas Bookshop by Jenny Colgan
"Losing myself in Jenny Colgan's beautiful pages is the most delicious, comforting, satisfying treat I have had in ages." —Jane Green, New York Times bestselling author of Summer Secrets
Nina Redmond is a literary matchmaker. Pairing a reader with that perfect book is her passion… and also her job. Or at least it was. Until yesterday, she was a librarian in the hectic city. But now the job she loved is no more.
Determined to make a new life for herself, Nina moves to a sleepy village many miles away. There she buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile—a mobile bookshop that she drives from neighborhood to neighborhood, changing one life after another with the power of storytelling.
From helping her grumpy landlord deliver a lamb to sharing picnics with a charming train conductor who serenades her with poetry, Nina discovers there's plenty of adventure, magic, and soul in a place that's beginning to feel like home… a place where she just might be able to write her own happy ending.
