All twelve stories have some romance, and some have a paranormal or dystopian element. There wasn't one story I didn't like. And, after all, they are short stories, so even if you don't like it, it's SHORT.
Sometimes short stories don't have enough for me. (I'm not usually a fan.) But each of these stories has enough character, setting, and plot elements to feel complete.
I'm not going to tell you about each story, but here are my three favorites:
It's a Yuletide Miracle, Charlie Brown, by Stephanie Perkins (she also edited the book.)
What the Hell Have You Done, Sophie Roth? by Gayle Forman
Star of Bethlehem, by Ally Carter
I probably chose those because they are the most heartwarming, and after all that's what I wanted in a holiday story. But I wouldn't recommend skipping any of the stories.
If you look at the list of authors for these stories, you can imagine the amount of creativity and beautiful writing contained in these pages. If (or when) you are in the mood for some holiday reading, put My True Love Gave to Me at the top of your list.
