Favorite Christmas Stories?

Almost every bookstore, especially secondhand ones, have a section devoted to holiday stories. Everything from the classics to dime romance novels with ivy wreaths on the cover. Good books, bad books, and in-between books. Do you have a favorite?

The one Christmas book I've gotten into the habit of reading every year is Donita K. Paul's novella, Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball.

It's short, lighthearted but at the same time full of heart, and a great read. It tells the whimsical, humorous story of Cora Crowder. One snowy night, she stumbles upon Warner, Werner, and Wizbotterdad's bookshop, where the mysterious matchmaking booksellers make a valiant attempt to bring Cora and her coworker Simon Derrick together for a breathtaking night of magic at the annual Christmas Ball. I'm not usually one for reading romances, but this one, full of faith, laughter, and family, holds a special place on my bookshelf.

So what's your favorite holiday novel? Is there one you make a habit of returning to each year?
