The Best Christmas-themed books to remind you of your Best Childhood Memories

Hey Lovelies,

It’s another beautiful December night and all through the house, not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse. The Grinch came and stole our Christmas tree and presents with care. Unfortunately for him, three ghosts would appear and tell him to change his ways lest death be near. As he returned the gifts, the Polar Express passed by with tiny Tim, young Marie and the Nutcracker on for a ride.


I hoped you like my little mismatched poem up above. The Christmas season is all about sharing and rekindling our favourite memories, spending time with family and experiencing feelings of tremendous joy, appreciation and generosity. It’s a time to remember our religious beliefs, feel hope and all around feel the best we’ve felt all year. The books I’m mentioned below do just that. They are some of the first stories that many of us hear as children. The first books to inspire us and create that Christmas sparkle that hopefully we all still carry today. Join me as we take a stroll down memory lane…..

1. A  Christmas Carol- Charles Dickens


2. How the Grinch stole Christmas – Dr Seuss


3. The Night Before Christmas – Clement C. Moore


4. The Polar Express – Chris Van Allsburg


5. The Nutcracker-  E. T. A Hoffman



These Christmas classics are celebrated and cherished for a reason. And even though all have been adapted in many forms of expression such as movies, music, cartoons or plays, nothing feels more special than cuddling up and reading a good book. So if you’re up for some Christmas joy and reading this month, may I suggest you take a peek at these Christmas classics and feel like you did as a child when you first read or heard these stories. A bright-eyed wonder as a story fills your ears and flows straight to warming your heart.

*Random fun fact: Jim Carrey has played the lead in movie adaptations of 2 of these books. Looks like someone loves Christmas as much as we do!!!!

With Love,

  2. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    I also want to improve SEO of my website. Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?
