Publisher's Summary

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 the 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 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 charm and frenzy that have become part of our holiday tradition.

God-awful

This was the most predictable, boring book that I have ever listened to. What an utter waste of time and money!

Highly Entertaining, will make you laugh and cry

What do you do when the last bird leaves the nest? Why plan a romantic vacation to a tropical destination of course. That was the plan and the trials and road blocks along the way are realistic if somewhat exaggerated. This was a great listen, will make you smile one minute, shake your head in agreement the next, laugh out loud and wipe a tear from your eye in the end.
