Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?

I'd like a little Christmas tripe with my Christmas trifle, please...

I want to write a Christmas-themed essay for my book review blog, and I'm trying to come up with some Christmas lit to review. It might be fun, for instance, to gather together a selection of Christmas tripe such as Santa's Christmas Prayer (link not safe for those who have any literary sensibilities and have just eaten) and go to town on it. Or, at the other end of the spectrum, to write something about Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Which Christmas novels/stories/poems do you love and loathe? I don't review movies, so text only please...

Important poetry

What book of poetry, published in the last 25 years, has meant the most to you personally -- the book you have found yourself returning to again and again?
