As Christmas approaches, one starts to hear sleigh bells in the distance – and book lovers start looking for books that remind them of the festive season: the misty-eyed memories of holidays past; the joyous spirit of givingl and, of course, the difficulties that sometimes go hand-in-hand with family get-togethers and dinners.
