We just hauled out our bin of Christmas stuff last night. So nice to see some of these familiar faces again. I heartily recommend these as the least junky or saccharine Christmas books you can buy. Though with that said, I haven't read Lemony Snicket's The Latke Who Wouldn't Stop Screaming: A Christmas Story yet. This will be the third year we'll be reading The Nutcracker, I daresay it might be a tradition. I can't wait to read it again... slightly perverse and baroque, as all good Christmas stories must be.
