I LOVE these descriptions about the book:

"If the holiday rush has you feeling like you’ve been run over by a reindeer, this is the book for you!"

"If you long for a “humbug free” holiday, this is the book for you!"

"Enhancing the Holidays in the Real World"

And this book REALLY DELIVERS!

The other day I was having "one of those kinds of days."

Everything seemed to be going wrong.

So I curled up on the couch, grabbed this book, and disappeared into the world of Christmas enchantment.

My heart was softened, my spirit was lifted, and I was comforted by the One who is Christmas.

58 TRUE stories are captured within these pages; all about Christmas.

You will read about:

* "YOJ" to the world

* Holiday Shock Therapy

* Poor As I Am

* The Manger in Manhattan

* The "Funnest" Christmas Ever


You will laugh, you will cry, you will say "I've done that."

And most of all you will feel wrapped up in Christmas love.

Also included are recipes, puzzles, and assorted patterns to make your Christmas more meaningful.

And as the author so eloquently put it:

"Merry, sacred, healing, happy, humble, joyful, yearning, hopeful Christmas to you!"
