Often we have a conversation about our Christmas reading at this time. I can't find another thread so...

I don't have a set of books I read at this time of the year. Ususally I save up specific books.

This year, I have "Fell Farm at Christmas" that I've been saving for some months.

I don't re-read whole books, just because of lack of time, but I re-read the festive bits from various books - Jo of the Chalet School, the Little House books, Little Women, What Katy Did At School, The Lost Staircase, some of the Sadlerrs Wells books and a few others. I also re-read The Chalet School Christmas Story Book, which GGBP published in 2007 - I'm quite surprised that they've never done another one.

Always whim of the moment, rather than any special Christmas ones, here.

I'm still having a Bunkle re-read, having finally got my hands on the last one to complete the series (as so often under such circumstances, it'll never be among my favourites, but still good to have them all); after that I might go for a Joan Aiken re-read, or at least what these days are dubbed 'The Wolves Chronicles'). This year I have squirrelled away a copy of Ben Aaronovitch's Lies Sleeping (latest of the 'Rivers of London' series) to read over the holidays, and I'm hoping for at least one more of the collectables from my list for a Christmas present.
