Merry Christmas: Twelve Days of Books to Beg, Borrow or Buy

For some of us, the Christmas Season is just beginning. For the remainder of this week through January 5, we celebrate the birth of Jesus and look forward to the celebration of the arrival of the three kings, magi, in Bethlehem bearing gifts, which is celebrated on January 6. Many cite this tradition as the origin of a favorite Christmas carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas.

Even if you don't celebrate an extended Christmas season, it is still fun to stay in the spirit of giving as long as possible. It's why many of us loved singing the Twelve Days of Christmas as children. Here are a few gift ideas to get you started. Take advantage of the "After Christmas" sales and get something for yourself.
