Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded malls, no corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted presents. Thats just what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, just this once, theyll skip the holiday altogether. Theirs will be the only house on Hemlock Street without a rooftop Frosty; they wont be hosting their annual Christmas Eve bash; they arent even going to have a tree. They wont need one, because come December 25 theyre setting sail on a Caribbean cruise. But, as this weary couple is about to discover, skipping Christmas brings enormous consequences-and isnt half as easy as theyd imagined.

A classic tale for modern times, Skipping Christmas offers a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become part of our holiday tradition.
