    This entire book, much like the series, is about not being afraid to borrow beloved plot points or tropes to create a fresh experience, while also offering glimpses of entirely original concepts. Add to that the fact that Stranger Things hasn't fully embraced any winter holidays, this book will be a must-read for fans of the series or genre enthusiasts who appreciate unconventional and holiday-related twists in otherwise horrifying adventures.
