Christmas

Christmas used to be a holiday that lasted for just a few days. This is no longer the case. We talk about the Christmas season, and for many people this time begins in early December. In some ways the drawn out celebration can be a little much at times, but in others is a joy. For one thing one can read Christmas books for many weeks instead of just a few days! Enjoy this very large collection of Christmas titles for readers of all kinds and ages.
