Schulz Running Press Kid I love A Charlie Brown Christmas! Peanuts are always a classic for all holidays! — EVHLover 7. The Night Before the Night Before Christmas by Natasha Wing Grosset & Dunlap My first grade teacher gave us all a copy and I loved it so much. It’s about a family on December 23, scrambling to get ready for Christmas but eventually seeing they don’t need a special tree or tons of gifts. So cute but also hilarious. — divya326 8. Letters from Father Christmas by J. R. R. Tolkien HarperCollins Tolkien would write these letters to his children each year, pretending to be 'Father Christmas,' and he would describe the North Pole and stuff like that. It’s beyond endearing. I love it. — Bespectacled Heroine 9.

And I also love The Snowman. — Michayla Brock, Facebook 10. Herschel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric Kimmel Holiday House It will always be a loved and cherished holiday must-read. — Jcd3811 11.
