The gem of this collection is the first selection, David Sedaris' hilarious Christmas essay, "Six to Eight Black Men". The rest, though ranging from well-written to quite well-written, are a confusing hodge podge of authors and genres from romance to horror, none with any further connection to the holiday season. Still, it was free, entertaining, and introduced to the work of some authors with whom I wasn't familiar and anything from Sedaris is always a treat.
