5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious three pages about two holidays 16 Jan 2014
By humanitysdarkerside VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
If you are into macabre humour, you have to read "A Holiday Explained". You just have to read about how Santa gets the presents delivered and how the Easter Bunny became hollow. "A Holiday Explained" is a wonderfully funny and well-written short story - all of three pages long. Well done Mr. York.

Reading this to your kids should be no problem. Kids tend to like the gross and macabre - at least that is what my experience has taught me.

4.0 out of 5 stars The clash of two holidays 18 Nov 2011
By S. Warfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How Santa Claus gets down the chimney is the topic of the discussion between Santa and another well-known holiday figure in this very funny and very short story. The story takes place atop a roof by the chimney on a frosty night, but stockings are being filled in the cozy room inside the house. Santa seems to be in two places at once.

The ending of the story is so cute and so funny that it made me laugh. It's a great little holiday story to put a smile on your face.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Christmas Confrontation Between Santa and the Jealous Easter bunny 12 Dec 2012
By James N Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This short story only will take you three or four minutes to read but you'll enjoy every second of those few minutes. Basically you've got a fly on the wall seat to a confrontation between Santa Claus and the Easter bunny. The chocolate courier has stumbled on a secret of Santa's and demands to know the rest or else! He has been jealous of the success the fat bearded man has had in dominating the seasonal holidays and thinks this is his time to balance the scales. A very good, very fun read!
3.0 out of 5 stars Very short 31 Mar 2014

This is a very short story featuring Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny that isn't nearly as funny as I suspect the author thinks it is.
