5 Christmas (Free!) Short Stories


We all know that Christmas is a time for giving and receiving, so in the spirit of that, I’ve decided to make up a list of 5 short, sweet festive stories to warm you up on these cold nights and get you in the mood for the holidays. The best part about it? They’re all currently free to download!

Six Geese a-Laying sophie kinsella

This is a very creative take on one of the most classic Christmas tales of all time, in which a group of ambitious and over achieving mothers-to-be visit a coveted and often overbooked pre-natal class. Author Sophie Kinsella’s sparkling humour and vibrant characters bring this tale to life, and create a surprisingly well-rounded story in such a short amount of pages.

The Night Before Christmas
clement c. moore

Written as a very, very short bedtime story in the form of a poem, this classic is beautifully written and is ideal for those with a penchant for nostalgia, which goes hand-in-hand with the spirit of Christmas! You’ll find this edition free to download on Amazon with a stylish cover, and although it’s an eBook, children and adults alike may still feel tempted to grab a lamp and read it under the covers; because really, who doesn’t want to feel like a child on Christmas?

Baby It’s Cold Outside (Got That Swing Book 0)
renee conoulty

Being from the northern hemisphere, I often forget that some countries are going through their Summer season during Christmas in more southern parts of the world (don’t judge me, I have travelled, it’s just that Hollywood has got into my brain and tailored everything towards the idea of a classic, snowy Christmas). In this cute, bubbly story set in Melbourne, we find ourselves in a setting far removed from the white, frosty cities we’ve come to know in traditional Christmas stories. Again, despite being so short, it’s a particularly well-rounded story and the perfect introduction for the character of Maci, the recurring protagonist by the author, Renee Conoulty. I won’t spoil anything, but this is a cute, light read, and one that is a very classic chick-lit.

Three Men and a Maybe katey lovell

Now moving onto something quite modern (and wild), this story’s premise features a woman named Cerys receiving not one, but three marriage proposals on New Year’s Eve! I will admit, my inner cynic rolled his eyes when I read the blurb of this story, but I found a little suspension of disbelief goes a long way. If you let go of your judgements on such a premise, underneath you’ll find a very sweet and engaging story. We all love a good “Which man will she choose?” type of novel, and you’ll find that here, and for free no less! Download it while you still can.

Love at First Spray

Are you one of those people who gives their partner a list of what they want for Christmas? It takes some of the surprise away, sure, but it is practical and time saving. Have you ever faced a situation where the most desired item on said list is sold out everywhere, and you only have a few hours remaining until you exchange gifts? Well, Simon, the protagonist of this short and sweet story, is facing exactly that situation. With the pressure on, Simon receives the unexpected help of a sexy stranger on the quest to find the perfect gift. However, what they end up finding is more than just a gift for Simon’s self-absorbed boyfriend. A story that is concise, to the point and which contains a message about finding love in the most unexpected times and places. We have on our hands a feel-good read.
