Six top fictional holiday parties

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog, Chrissie Gruebel tagged six top fictional holiday parties, including:
The Fezziwig’s Christmas Party
A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens

Bust out the petticoats and the dance cards, Mr. Fezziwig is rocking his most baller white wig and he’s ready to get his jig on. The thing about Fezziwig that’s so delightful is that he’s a businessman but he’s also a business, man—and his business is showing family, friends, partners, and apprentices the time of their lives come holiday season. It’s the “best holiday party in London” and a Christmas party in the truest sense of the words (guaranteed figgy pudding!), so we’re all about it. Just watch out for ghosts who are teaching invaluable life lessons.

A Christmas Carol is on Tom Lamont's list of ten of the best time travelers.
