Well, I started getting the Better Homes and Gardens Special Editions many years ago, at least the Christmas Cookies and Holiday Cooking/Holiday Baking ones. I also like Southern Living's Home For The Holidays, and Martha's Christmas Cookies issue.
I just picked up a new one for this year, Paula Dean's Christmas. It's okay. Though my wife keeps hoping that sooner or later, Alton Brown will do a Christmas mag or book of some kind.
