Skipping Christmas Review
Imagine a year without Christmas. 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.
I had to read this book for the fact that it was the book for book club this month, and I would like to point out that I am sorry that this post is late, but it is the best I can do at this moment. Anyways, this is the book that the movie, Christmas with the Kranks is based of off.
The characters were hilarious in this story that was such a crazy view and adventure, throughout such a time of year that most would not what to see. Each and every one seemed to have there own personality that seemed to distracted from the two main characters.
I really found the movie and the book to be pretty similar, There was scenes that were adding into the movie, to increase the movie longer and what not. Since the book is only 177 pages, there isn't much to go through with the story at this moment.
3 out of 5 stars
