I know Christmas is the last thing people want to think about right now, but I wanted to start looking now...

My family and I are starting a new christmas tradition called a "Christmas Storybook Advent Calender" it consists of reading one christmas story a night from December 1st until Christmas Eve. Each individual book will be wrapped up in christmas wrapping paper and put in a basket and we'll take turns opening one a night to read while we countdown to the christmas holiday.

 I'm in search of some good suggestions of christmas stories i should get and im also looking for really good deals.

If you have a suggestion could you please post the title and author and if at all possible maybe an ISBN (incase there are several version of the story)?

I'm looking for short stories, nothing over 50 pages. They can be anywhere from children stories to adult like. Funny, touching, etc.

Thanks to everyone who takes time to read this! :]
