I have this book piles for years and now I decide to give it a chance for so many reviews says good thing about it :)

Classic novel of 19th-century family life during and after the Civil War, in a household with four sisters. Alcott based the March family largely on her own real-life family
Through a Glass Darkly by Jostein Gaarder
Last year I read The Christmas Mystery, one of the best Christmas-Themed Book I've ever read and it was Gaarder, he has never failed me, so I'll go for this one too.
About this book:
It's almost Christmas. Cecilia lies sick in bed as her family bustle around her to make her last Christmas as special as possible. Cecilia has cancer. An angel steps through her window. So begins a spirited and engaging series of conversations between Cecelia and her angel. As the sick girl thinks about her life and prepares for her death, she changes subtly, in herself and in her relationships with her family. Jostein Gaarder is a profoundly optimistic writer, who writes about death with wisdom, compassion and an enquiring mind. 'Through a Glass, Darkly' will not only bring comfort to the bereaved. It will move and amaze everyone who reads it
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafron
Okeeey I know this one has nothing relate to Christmas, but I can't stop myself from putting it into the list, because it is a book about itself and who doesn't want that kind of story? Umm...I don't have it yet, anyone care to buy it for me? :D
About the book:
Barcelona, 1945: A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, and Daniel, an antiquarian book dealer’s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in a mysterious book entitled The Shadow of the Wind, by one Julián Carax. But when he sets out to find the author’s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax’s books in existence. Soon Daniel’s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelona’s darkest secrets--an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love.
