We have an old motto in Italy that more or less says: Christmas with your parents and Easter with whoever you want. And so Sean is pretty much forced to bring home for Christmas his six months boyfriend... the problem is that said boyfriend doesn't exist. Tired to listen to his mother complains about how much lonely he seemed in the city, Sean invented a boyfriend and as inspiration he used his work colleague Gary, And so why not asking to Gary himself to come back home with him for Christmas? Being Sean and Gary really friends, it's easy for Sean to convince him, but now another problem is facing up: Sean is starting to feel a bit too much comfortable with Gary as boyfriend, and Gary has always thought that Sean is a one night stand type of guy, and so, maybe, is not so easy to prove that he can be the "real deal".

The story is short, 39 pages, but has a really "young" and "fast" style: a lot of dude, mate and I can almost hear the slaps on the shoulders... Gary and Sean are a little bit crazy, but more crazy seems to be their family, both of them very much supportive: no problem here on where the boyfriend of their son will sleep while he is in their house, I was quite expecting to find the supplies in the bedside table...

Funny and enjoyable, it represents the light side of the Christmas tales.
