It is time for sleigh rides, snow angels, mistletoe, and carols – at Once Upon A Book Club, it is our favorite time of the year.

We absolutely love Christmas, and as the lyrics say, "Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la". The excitement and anticipation is infectious, and you can't help but be captured by the Christmas spirit. Families all around the world are getting ready to come together, children are eagerly counting down the days, and mothers are wondering if they will get everything done in time.

Christmas is a time when memories are made, and new stories are added to our happy recollections. Each family has their own unique story that unites them and brings them closer. At Once Upon A Book Club we are all about stories and giving the gift of imagination and our Holiday Collections make the perfect gift for your loved ones, or perhaps it is time to treat yourself; after all it is Christmas!

The 12 Days of Christmas

The 12 days of Christmas is a song that takes us back to our childhood, and we could not resist creating 12 Days of Book-Club-Mas collection which is ready to ship as we write. Available for both adults and young adults, it is simply every bookworm's Christmas Dream. 12 exclusive short stories by different authors have been carefully chosen for your reading pleasure. And yes, each story is brought to life by the perfect gift. Just like we have to wait for Christmas to open our presents, you will have to wait for those key moments to open your specially selected surprise. We believe in creating moments that will last, and each item can be used and enjoyed year-round.

A Royal Christmas

Christmas is brought to life in this epic story, A Royal Christmas Fairy Tale, by Karen Schaler, who wrote Netflix's hit movie The Christmas Prince. We don't do anything in half measures, and our exclusive cloth-bound hardcover addition with its foiled spine will be treasured for years to come. Filled with love and hope, this feel-good Christmas love story is the perfect gift for the romantics in your life. 

A Royal Christmas Fairy Tale is the perfect combination of Christmas and finding your happily ever after. Kaylie discovers the meaning of Christmas in a quintessential Christmas village featuring a storybook castle, a royal ball, and the crucial Prince. It is a great reminder that Christmas is a special time of year - the magic of Christmas touches all who open their hearts and believe!

Book Club Challenge

Although the year is drawing to a close, our 2022 book challenge is the ideal excuse to stock up on biscuits and blankets, and don't forget your Santa mug! And if you manage to complete all the challenges before the end of the year, we believe that you deserve a gift of your own – a mystery book from our OUABC incredible collection. There may not be enough time left to conquer the challenge on your own, but you could turn it into a family event bringing you all closer together. The challenge also makes a great gift, as you can include a few books to get your ardent readers started.

The Christmas Spirit

As Christmas draws near and your house is full of the sounds of Christmas, twinkling lights, stockings hanging on the fireplace waiting for Christmas morning, and the chaos that is bound to ensue - Remember to take time to be present, to share with your family, to put that long to-do list on hold. It is not about perfection - it is about sharing, and it is about family. Christmas, like stories, stirs the imagination and brings us together.
