Hardy Boys Christmas stories
« on: December 13, 2017, 08:57:05 PM »
Since it is almost Christmastime, I got to thinking about Christmas in The Hardy Boys series.  Is there any stories that take place at this time of year other than The Mystery of Cabin Island?

You might like to look through this thread (http://www.hardyboyscasefiles.com/forums/index.php?topic=2276.0) that lists a number of holidays, including Christmas.
Other Hardy Boys books set at or near Christmas- A Crime for Christmas (Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Supermysteries #2), Shock Jock (Hardy Boys Casefiles #106), Perfect Getaway (Hardy Boys Casefiles #12), Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys Super Sleuths! (the first volume has a story called "The Secret of Mountaintop Inn" set at Christmas.)

A yes, Perfect Getaway I thought I remembered a Casefile that had them leave Bayport right before Christmas.

Casefiles #46 is also unusual in that it is set a Christmas, but it is a baseball book, hence the title Foul Play.  #82 is also a Christmas book (but I recall that it takes place within the first week of December.

I was just reading “Purge” from Super Sleuths 2.  It’s set during Christmas Vacation, but takes place days before Christmas.  (Bess asks Nancy if she wants to look “gorgeous for Christmas” when Nancy is unsure about getting a haircut.
