Does the sight of a house festooned in glowing coloured bulbs with an illuminated reindeer in the garden bring you out in a cold sweat? Or is the thought of days of endless cold turkey sandwiches enough to make you become a vegetarian? And what of the adorable little carol singers - does their out-of-tune wailing and screeching set your teeth on edge? And the oh-so-annoying Christmas albums constantly on playing in every crowded shop you visit...the jumper-knitting relatives pouting to be kissed under a poisonous plant...the freezing, dark mornings that make you wish you could stay under the duvet forever...If all these things make you want either to jump aboard the next plane to Timbuktu or stick your head in the oven along with the roast tatties, then this is the must-have survival book for you. Find comfort in the curmudgeonly comments. Laugh at the ludicrous festive facts. And pity those about you who are taken in by the silly-season madness!

A brilliant book I could have written this as a Bah Humbug. Shows the crazy Christmas ritual is not universally appreciated. An excellent sense of humour and irony throughout

One of those ,"dip in, dip out of" books. Some of the chapters are hilarious - the ones about all the naff outdoor decorations with houses dripping in Christmas lights and awful Christmas carols. Book starts off well but seems to run out of steam towards the end as if the ideas had dried up and becomes a blt repetitious. Nevertheless a good fun light read

If it wanted to be light it needed to be lighter; if heavy heavier. There was too much information for the book to be fluffy one minute toilet reading. On the other hand it opened doors to some interesting stuff that could have done with a lot more meat to the bones to make it a worthwhile read. so all in all a mediocre attempt behind a promising title which I got bored with half way through.

I found the book very funny.I will never be able to sing "Good King Wenceslas" again without thinking of the description in the book and having a giggle.I also know how to deal with Carol singers, ''buy it and enjoy

a must for all those who see christmas as over commercial and wish for a return to a simplet time. A treasure for those who want to escape all the fuss - you are NOT alone!Read more
A good fun read from one that loathes Christmas for the sheer hypocrisy and commercial greed of it.
It is very funny, BUT you do have to be a certain age to understand some of the references.Not sure I would recommend this book, anyway only approprate at Christmas.
Being to old!!!!!! to enjoy xmas now I found it funny, truthful and just hit the spot over xmas time
