I Saw Mommy Kicking Santa Claus: The Ultimate Holiday Survival Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hilarious holiday handbook for those who are starting to see Scrooge's point of view.

Let's face it — sometimes the joys of Christmas are a little overrated. One can't be blamed for feeling like booting Santa (and all the other holiday trappings) right back up the chimney. But with a little wry humor — as well as some comforting words and lots of smart advice — Ann Hodgman tackles Christmas stress and brings cheer back into the holiday season.

I Saw Mommy Kicking Santa Claus is full of helpful hints, recipes, and true holiday horror stories to let readers know that, amid all the toys that need assembling and traditions that need remembering, they are not alone.

Readers will unwrap advice on:

  • Dealing with the "truth" about Santa
  • Merging different holiday traditions
  • Keeping a lid on holiday stress
  • Handling all that shopping
  • Surviving "difficult" holiday guests
  • Finding the Christmas spirit
  • Recipes and holiday crafts

Synopsis:

A hilarious holiday handbook for those who are starting to see Scrooge's point of view, full of helpful advice, recipes, and true holiday horror stories. From the author of One Bite Won't Kill You, Beat This! Cookbook, and Beat That! Cookbook.
