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.Hide synopsis

This a quick and fun read with an almost farce like quality. It tells of small town/community politics that could equally apply to an English Village and reassesses what celebrations like Christmas are about, or for, without being heavy or too serious. A good bedtime read and perhaps a good Christmas ...
A great laugh and absolutely necessary reading around November each year to remind us of the absurdity we all get trapped into leading up to Christmas. A well crafted balance between skepticism of the over-commercialization of the season and the very real benefits of close neighbours. A very welcome ...
skipping christmas seems at first to be a simple story about a couple who want to change an established routine that they and their neighbours have established over the years. but as this story unwraps, the ripples their actions cause to themselves and their friends and neighbours are quite startling ...
This book is really fascinating & is definitely a nice change of pace from Grisham's thrilling law novels. Drastically different than the movie, this book is far superior in every way. It is relatively short & great for a plane ride or long night.
