Just a little mini reading list that I recommend for fellow fantasy enthusiasts (like myself), to check out and read! Have a Merry Christmas!
★The Little Match Girl
I used to hate this fairytale because it was sad but as I’ve gotten older, I have learned to enjoy it’s melancholy nature, plus it’s a nice and quick read if you don’t have a lot of time on your hands to spend reading old stories.
★The Elves and the Shoemaker
This one I always loved. It was cute and cozy. It was also written by my good pals The Brothers Grimm. A solid 8/10 fairytale for sure. Elves are always great.
★The Holy Night
I don’t know if this counts as a fairytale but it’s easily a classic. It is a tale written by Selma Lagerlof which stars a cold-hearted shepherd who meets a man looking for wood to make a fire to warm his wife and their newborn child (sound familiar?).
Another classic. I really like this one because I own a fairytale book with the most beautiful illustrations. The sugar plumb fairy is gorgeous and was everything my 7 year old self wanted to be.
★The Little Girl and the Winter Whirlwinds
A little less well known fairytale. It’s about a wicked winter witch that wants to make winter last all year so a girl sets out to stop her. She also enlists the help of father Christmas to help her on this adventure (and no, this isn’t the Chronicles of Narnia, though speaking of which…)
★The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe
This is a Christmas fairytale and you cannot convince me otherwise. Read the book with illustrations to vastly improve your life. God Bless, C.S. Lewis and him stoking my desire to check every closet for a magical world.
★The Steadfast Tin Soldier
A tale by Hans Christian Anderson. Is unbelievably cute but surprisingly heart breaking? Like A Romeo and Juliet style Toy Story. But still manages to be sweet.
And I’ll stop there! My hot chocolate is getting cold! Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas season! A goodnight to all, and to all a goodnight!
