Pristine, white snow shrouds evil things that revel in the longest, darkest night of the year. A fresh waft of peppermint brightens a monster’s foul breath. World weary ghosts have only until dawn to seek their retribution. The wind howls through the trees, or is that a choir of unearthly voices? “O Horrid Night” revives the tradition of telling ghost stories on Christmas ...more

These stories have spooky holiday vibes, and anyone who enjoys Dickens' A Christmas Carol should read this anthology. There are different writing styles from both sides of the pond. Great to read during the holidays while munching on Christmas cookies and sipping hot cocoa!

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house WAS A WHOLE BUNCH OF CRAZY CREEPY AWESOME!! Krampus was lurking with nightmarish carolers, hexed figgy-pudding, a vampire... and before I could finish reading it all, I had to open my door to make sure a carriage of death hadn't pulled up to claim lives!
But I did finish the works and lived to say that Newberry has Done It Again! A superb collection of traditional tales with a spin dark enough to make Santa Claus himself check that milk

DNF; way too much moralizing


Krampus going after a kid who gets physically abused by his parents along with other stories of kicking those who are down, is not so much horror as torture porn. Perhaps readers who like the Saw movies will be satisfied with these tales but I had to stop before getting halfway through.

I like books like this and Sojourn which give new authors some exposure. I bought this so I could read Casey Hamilton's story. I read a few more, but since the season has passed I don't see myself finishing the book soon. This will probably become my "standing in line" book, something to read on my phone when I am passing the time. I will definitely finish this off by the next holiday season.
