A feast central to the Christian liturgical year, it closes the Advent season and initiates the twelve days of Christmastide, which ends after the twelfth night.

[close] I was sitting last year before going on holiday thinking what books to take abroad with me that would be about summer and fun. I looked up numerous times 'best ya books to take on holiday' and was met with a tiny amount of actual atmospheric books. I felt I needed a group like this to help me find atmospheric books for the different seasons and holidays throughout the year! So that's what I did :) Please recommend books for other members and maybe you'll find your next favourite book!
