(Closed) December Christmas Challenge

Complete Thread
This challenge runs from December 1st to December 25th. The books must depict Christmas or other December seasonal holidays, such as Kwanzaa or Chanukah, in some way – in the title, on the cover picture or the setting of the book. Northern Hemisphere “Decemberish” things also count, such as snow, angels, mistletoe, etc. in the title or on the cover.

Any type of release will count. No points this year - I'll just do a tally at the end. No need to pre-sign up - just start posting below!

And don't forget to check if your book also fits concurrent challenges - D is for December and What's in a Name (Chris in Christmas counts for that one)

 

The Dutch forum has a Winter challenge for December. I selected some Christmasbooks for that (in Dutch language). Not all of the (Dutch) releases will count here; If I do not forget, I might post them

 

challenge going on in this thread. Whatever you want to post in is fine. The idea is to move books along!
