Twelve Days of Christmas: A Christmas Novel

By Macomber, Debbie

New Yok: Ballantine Books, 2017. Friendly and bubbly, Julia Padden likes nearly everyone, but her standoffish neighbor, Cain Maddox, presents a particular challenge. No matter how hard she’s tried to be nice, Cain rudely rebuffs her at every turn, preferring to keep to himself. But when Julia catches Cain stealing her newspaper from the lobby of their apartment building, that’s the last straw. She’s going to break through Cain’s scrooge-like exterior the only way she knows how: by killing him with kindness. To track her progress, Julia starts a blog called The Twelve Days of Christmas. Her first attempts to humanize Cain are far from successful. Julia brings him homemade Christmas treats and the disagreeable grinch won’t even accept them. Meanwhile, Julie’s blog becomes an online sensation, as an astonishing number of people start following her adventures. Julia continues to find ways to express kindness and, little by little, chips away at Cain’s gruff façade to reveal the caring man underneath. Unbelievably, Julia feels herself falling for Cain—and she suspects that he may be falling for her as well. But as the popularity of her blog continues to grow, Julia must decide if telling Cain the truth about having chronicled their relationship to the rest of the world is worth risking their chance at love. .

Christmas Stories

By Tesdell, Diana Secker

New York: Everyman's Library, 2007. Christmas Stories is a treasury of short fiction by great writers of the past two centuriesfrom Dickens and Tolstoy to John Updike and Alice Munro. As a literary subject, Christmas has inspired everything from intimate domestic dramas to fanciful flights of the imagination, and the full range of its expression is represented in this wonderfully engaging anthology. Goblins frolic in the graveyard of an early Dickens tale and a love-struck ghost disrupts a country estate in Elizabeth Bowens "Green Holly" The plight of the less fortunate haunts Chekhovs "Vanka" and Willa Cathers "The Burglars Christmas" but takes a boisterously comic turn in Damon Runyons "Dancing Dans Christmas" and in John Cheevers "Christmas Is a Sad Season for the Poor" From Vladimir Nabokovs intensely moving story of a fathers grief in "Christmas" to Truman Capotes hilarious yet heartbreaking "A Christmas Memory," from Grace Paleys Jewish girl starring in the Christmas pageant in "The Loudest Voice" to the dysfunctional family ski holiday in Richard Fords ""Crèche" each of the stories gathered here is imbued with Christmas spirit (of one kind or another), and all are richly and indelibly entertaining..
