I know you were only joking when you asked me to recommend a passage from the Qur'an suitable for reading on Christmas(!), but I found this excerpt from Sura 56 for you anyway–

al-Waqi`ah: That Which is Coming
(Also called The Event, or The Inevitable)

Thus if he is of those brought nigh,
Then breath of life, and plenty, and a Garden of delight.
And if he is of those on the right hand,
Then the greeting "Peace be unto thee" from those on the right hand.
