Re: Skipping Christmas
This book was recommended by several different people. After the third referral I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did ! The book is quirky fun. Sure it goes overboard with the amounts the characters spend on Christmas!(But) There is more to the story than the spending. Its about community,family and coming together and helping one another! A very enjoyable book to read! Happy Reading and Happy Holidays! P.S. You may also enjoy The movie addition Christmas with the Krank's! Stays true to the book.
