If you’ve had Bing Crosby and Mariah Carey on repeat since Thanksgiving, welcome! You’re among friends here. For those of us who can’t get enough of the jingle-jangle spirit, Christmas isn’t about a single day of gifts and binge-eating sugar cookies. Rather, it’s a festive mindset that’s celebrated all month long with decking the halls, giving back, and acts of kindness. Whether you want to further stoke that holiday fire—or perhaps you’re feeling a bit Grinchy and need a little page-turning pick-me-up—these classic Christmas books (new and old) should do the trick.
