The Top Ten

Almost any one Christmas carol could be taken away, and it wouldn't make much of a difference. Not "Silent Night". - PetSounds

2 Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol"

A great classic. Teaches an important lesson of what Christmas is all about. - Kiteretsunu

3 The film "It's a Wonderful Life"
4 The tree

The ultimate Christmas baking, in my opinion. - PetSounds

6 Frederick Forsyth's "The Shepherd"

I read this story every Christmas Eve. - PetSounds

7 Family
8 The turkey
9 Snow
