Does the sight of a house festooned in glowing colored bulbs and a huge lighted reindeer bring you out in a cold sweat? Or does the thought of eating turkey for days and days make you groan inside?

Hilarious book for any "Modern-Day Scrooge". Really down to earth and up to date (as far as 2005 goes, of course). My reasoning for 5 stars is simply because I could have written it, word for word is how I talk/think so I felt connected to it right away. Would be a funny gift as well. ...more

Pretty much a 188 page dissection of all that is bad about Christmas in the UK, from the commercialism, through to bad Santas, the suicide rate through to the huge increase in accidents, as well as some astounding facts… like every year 4 people break their arms pulling crackers! A bit repetitive, but quite amusing at times, although some of the celebrity references date the book.

Started this book in December thinking it might make me laugh during the holiday season since it was so different in 2020. I did laugh out loud at parts of the book. However, some of the references were lost on me as the author lives in England. Some things I understood but not everything. Those that are true scrooges may enjoy it more than I did.

Aluksi hauska, mutta loppua kohden alkoi käydä mukahauskaksi. Kaikki joulukliseet löytyivät.

Ihan hauska kirja, hiukan hämäsi kirjan yltiöllinen suomalaistaminen, mutta näillä mennään. Ihan jees.

An amzing little book for those with a bit of scrooge in them.

Mukava piristys muuten väkinäiseen jouluintoiluun. Tosin tuli kovasti olo, että kirja oli miehille suunnattu. Ja miksi kirjan pitää olla huumori osastolla?
