Fiction | Humor

Luther and Nora Krank are fed up with the chaos of Christmas. The endless shopping lists, the frenzied dashes through the mall, the hassle of decorating the tree... where has all the joy gone? This year, celebrating seems like too much effort. With their only child off in Peru, they decide that just this once, they'll skip the holidays. They spend their Christmas budget on a Caribbean cruise set to sail on December 25, and happily settle in for a restful holiday season free of rooftop snowmen and festive parties.

But the Kranks soon learn that their vacation from Christmas isn't much of a vacation at all, and that skipping the holidays has consequences they didn't bargain for...

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.
