This collection of short stories and essays was edited by Greg Herren with the hopes of providing an idea of what it is like to experience the holiday season as a gay man. The book starts off with a series of stories related to men who have not completely come out of the closet or are in the process. These stories generally deal with handling the family either with rough reactions or continuing to hide their homosexuality because it falls outside of parental situations.

This was a fun collection of gay themed Christmas stories. The cover is misleading in that it brings to mind a collection of erotic stories, but these are not erotica. It is a typical short story collection in that some stories are far better than others. Overall, I enjoyed everything and am glad to have spent time with the stories.
