Book Summary: Twenty-five holiday tales of merry mutants, one for each day of December 1 through December 25! What does Magneto do for Hanukkah? What’s Rogue and Gambit’s first married Christmas like? Is Jubilee truly the master of navigating malls during the holidays? These questions and more are answered as all your favorite X-Men and more creators than you can shake a jingle bell at come together for a holiday celebration to last all month long!
Book Review: Okay so I picked this one because it really seemed kinda cute and I have always wanted to see what the X-Men do during the holidays. Unfortunately I must say I was a bit disappointed in this.

These stories follow a sort of advent calendar and deal with each X-Men during a time period. Although some of the stories are great (i.e. Gambit and Rogue) and some of them just felt sort of rushed or fell really short in their storytelling.

This is a really nice addition to any collection but it is more of a one-read and kept nicely packaged in your boxes.
