Now that I really think about it, any suggestion I would have would be children's lit too. :)

I can't think of a single adult story that is a "Christmas" story (stories that feature Christmas, yes...).

I'm thinking our Figment or Johnie can help with this question! :yes:

Well Dickins wrote a few Christmas based stories that adults could read. Not so sure about them being nice stories though. :unsure:

I was going to say that, but i did find a softer version of "A Christmas Carol". It was more modern but with the same message. I will try and find it.

The Christmas Train by David Baldacci
A Christmas Guest by Anne Perry

There was a good one last christmas about a guy who grew christmas trees and travelled to new york each year to sell them and one year his son ran away whilst there and how he finds him again hmmm I'll have to ponder on the title though
