Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded shops, no corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted presents. That’s just what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, just this once, they’ll skip the holiday altogether. Theirs will be the only house on the street without a rooftop Frosty the snowman; they won’t be hosting their annual Christmas Eve bash; they aren’t even going to have a tree. They won’t need one, because come December 25 they’re setting sail on a Caribbean cruise. But, as this weary couple is about to discover, skipping Christmas brings enormous consequences – and isn’t half as easy as they’d imagined.

A classic tale for modern times, Skipping Christmas offers a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that has become part of our holiday tradition.
 
 
Wanda’s two cents worth
I give this book an unreserved 5 * rating
It was fun, very funny and simply a pleasure to read over the holiday season and the immediate aftermath.
 
I am lucky enough not to have seen the movie because I see a lot of people reviewing the movie not so much the book or bringing their own traditions into the mix.  
 
We have loads of traditions but the primary one is to to remember that Christ was born as a gift to this world and then to have fun.  
And we do.  
 
I think that is what I loved most about the book.  It was FUN!
