 What do you like to read on the hoildays?
What do you like to read on holidays like a scary book for Halloween and a Christmas children's book? I love reading short scary books @ Halloween :roll: :wink: :|

Post Re: What do you like to read on the hoildays?
I usually go with horror books around Halloween. Last October I read the movie tie-in novelizations for the first 3 Halloween movies. I have 3 more ready for this Halloween, Ghostbusters 1 and 2 (not horror but Halloween type reading) and Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight. Halloween is generally the only holiday I change my reading habits for but last Christmas I read a book called "Nothing Lasts Forever" by Roderick Thorp. It's the book that Die Hard was based on and also takes place at Christmas.

These days I don't read anything special. When I was a child, one radio program (remember, this was pre-television) we never missed at Christmas was Dickens's "A Christmas Carol." There was a saying at our house, "Christmas isn't Christmas without Scrooge." Don't remember reading anything special at Halloween.

For those in America (or those just wanting a funny story) Stephen King's short story "Drunken Fireworks" would make for good Fourth Of July reading. It's about a fireworks "arms race" between two families who live across from each other on a lake and try to outdo each other every July 4th.

I read the same stuff on holidays as other days. Religious stuff, horror stories, Skeptic magazine, etc.

Ray Bradbury's "The Halloween Tree" is a pretty quick/fun read.

I had forgotten "The Halloween Tree." And Bradbury is one of my favorite writers.

Yeah I love Bradbury, "The Martian Chronicles" is one of my favorite books. "Something Wicked This Way Comes" would also be pretty good Halloween reading.

Every year before Christmas I have the tradition of reading "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" by Barbara Robinson. It is by far my favorite holiday book and parts of it still make me laugh. My daughter got in on the act and now she reads it with me the last few years.
