The Magnificent Ambersons
This is a great book to read at Christmastime, very lush and opulent. I thought there were strong parts and weak parts, but I really enjoyed it overall. There are some elements that made it dated, like "putting random lines in quotation marks" for emphasis, but for one of the older Pulitzers, I thought it was more relevant and modern than a lot of the writing from the early part of the 20th century. I look forward to the other winner by Booth Tarkington.
