Holiday Themed Novels? What’s your opinion?

It’s that time of year again and many publishing houses get ready to release their holiday themed stories. I’ve never been a fan of these stories but writers seem to sharpen their skills by weaving tales with a familiar holiday theme. Readers seem to want these collections more and more each year. Is that true? Is it our way of escaping the ever churning monotony of the holidays? Is it to escape the stress and anxiety accompanying our favorite time of year? Or, are we looking for some happiness during a time that could be one of the most depressing? What do you think? Do you run out and buy these stories as soon as they hit the shelves? And if you do, what favorite holiday storywould you like to see reworked and brought into the here and now? It’s a wonderful life? Maybe George Bailey can be a womanizer who gets a second crack at the local librarian? I’d love your opinion.
