#1 "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER
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.
