A book truly from hell. Note: this is NOT meant as a compliment. I mistakenly thought that these letters were going to be real and hellish, but alas, they're just the wordy, not funny blabbings made up by the author on stupid subjects like "Filling and loathing on Elm St", "Holiday Skinheads at Starbucks," and "Yuletide yearnings from Christopher Walken." Yuck!
I thought this was going to be horrible xmas letters that people had actually written to each other, ala awkward family photo style. Instead they were letters that were supposed to be funny from famous people or certain characters (your grandmother, a burner, Osama). I chuckled slightly once, in the 6 I attempted to read.

I really tried. I read for longer than I probably should have waiting for the book to get funny. Then I read the "They Might Be Amish" joke and I decided I had just had enough. This book was a waste of time.

Read this a few years ago and when I didn't find it funny, I just thought perhaps I was too young to understand its humor. But then I read reviews from other people and well, turns out it's really not funny at all.
Quite possibly the worst book I've ever read. Thought it would be real, humorous Christmas letters (like Awkward Family Photos). Nope, just a very lame attempt at humor.
I was expecting this to be a compilation odd of letters from real people collected over the years. Instead it is a collection of fictional letters to Santa.
It's a very fast read! Some what funny, but It would have been funnier if they were really letters. Not letter from Santa, Global warming etc.

A good roundhouse kick to the annoying round robins we get every year around Xmas-time, whether we want them in our mailbox or not.
