“You live life today, not tomorrow, certainly not yesterday.” – Luther Krank
Yes, my words for this book: cute story, light read, light hearted, funny…
Why I sugest this book? ‘Cause it’s cold out there which means Christmas is on the way. And I know we’re all tired of work, money, and other various worries to carry on so that we may lose the holiday spirit somehow. I sugest this book for this season with hope that this light story can help you get into the Christmas spirit even when you’re not in the mood. Hope it can makes you realize the simplest lesson which sometimes we forget easily in the pursuit of our own life.
Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded malls, 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 Hemlock Street without a rooftop Frosty, 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 from a beloved storyteller, John Grisham’s Skipping Christmas offers a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become part of our holiday tradition.
