This book is a hilarious look at some Christmas traditions (and non-traditions), like taking grandma shopping, starting your period on Christmas eve and having to stand in lines at the trailer-park-trash kmart for hours to get some kotex. Mom's "hot" new tree that she bought off of QVC, etc. I was laughing out loud throughout most of the book. A good, quick read, and a nice funny romp.
More great reading from Laurie Notaro. As the entries are short stories, this is great reading for the elliptical trainer. It makes the 20 minutes a day pass in no time. Plus, you get extra exercise trying to stay upright and not fall off while you are laughing hysterically. :)
If you can read this book without crying from laughing so hard, you might need to check in to a mental institution. I cried so hard. It was great. It's a must read if your having a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit.
This was my first book by this author. It wasn't horrible, but I kind of suspected that this would be a side-splitting adventure, which it wasn't. A few of the chapters made me chuckle, but nothing great. While I would probably read another book by this author if someone offered it, I don't think I would be seeking out this author on my own to purchase another title.
Got this book as a stocking stuffer for my college-going daughter. But I read it first, and it was very funny.I suggest for girl of any age.Especially if you need a break in the middle of Christmas preparations.
