Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forget visions of sugarplums and turkeys with trimmings. In this strange, surreal collection of full-color images, acclaimed photographer David Graham shows how Americans really experience Christmas - complete with tacky blinking lights, demented decorations, and the mess in the living room after all the presents are opened. Each offbeat image is accompanied by a quirky and unusual fact about Christmas; readers will learn that 28 percent of Americans admit to "regifting" their presents, that 22 million turkeys are consumed every year on December 25, and much more. "The Christmas List" is a hilarious, fresh look at classic American traditions.

Synopsis:

Here’s a fact-filled portrait of how most people really experience Christmas—complete with tacky blinking lights, demented decorations, and the mess in the living room after all the presents are opened. Along the way, you’ll discover plenty of strange statistics about shopping malls, Santa Claus, “video fireplaces,” and much more. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone naughty or nice!
