Description

Luther and Nora Krank are fed up with the chaos of Christmas. The endless shopping lists, the frenzied dashes through the mall, the hassle of decorating the tree... where has all the joy gone? This year, celebrating seems like too much effort. With their only child off in Peru, they decide that just this once, they'll skip the holidays. They spend their Christmas budget on a Caribbean cruise set to sail on December 25, and happily settle in for a restful holiday season free of rooftop snowmen and festive parties.

But the Kranks soon learn that their vacation from Christmas isn't much of a vacation at all, and that skipping the holidays has consequences they didn't bargain for...

A modern Christmas classic, Skipping Christmas is a charming and hilarious look at the mayhem and madness that have become ingrained in our holiday tradition.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

    This is a book to read every Christmas. Just like 'A Christmas Carol', this book has become - just like the movie version based on this book- a Christmas tradition!
  • The book is better than the movie

    I read this book on a trip from Albuquerque to Wichita and laughed all the way! A great read I would recommend to everyone who loves a good laugh. The movie was a big disappointment.

    I have read every novel Grisham has published. Each has been treasured as a masterpiece. Each rated five stars. This one does not have the flow of a Grisham novel. It's slow and not entertaining at all. I was very disappointed.
  • Love it!!!
