Skipping Christmas

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, SKIPPING CHRISTMAS offers a
hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become part of our
holiday tradition.
