Christmas and Literature

It is Christmas Eve.  What better way to unwind from the hectic preparations for tomorrow, than to read about Christmas in literature, and the holiday as seen through the eyes of some of our most beloved writers?  I have collected several articles and stories from around the Internet, which I sincerely hope you enjoy.
