I thought this was going to be a book that looks back at Kitschy Christmas Decorations. It is more a craft/recipe book. It presents ideas on how to really make your house Kitschy for Christmas. I actually kind of liked it. I think most of the decorations would be great for a Christmas Party. My favorite part was in the background of the picture for figgy pudding. There are hand made caroler decorations that look awesome. The story of the figgy pudding fit the psychotic looking carolers. I chuckle every time I look at the picture. Great imagination and most of all fun is the secret to a kitschy Christmas.
