The Upside-down Christmas Tree
And Other Bizarre Yuletide TalesBook - 2010
As the song says, "It's the most wonderful time of the year." And the weirdest. Friends and neighbors, married couples and lovers, parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren gather together and celebrate Christmas . . . Hanukkah . . . the Winter Solstice . . . Humbug Day. And for every familiar carol sung and every turkey dinner eaten and every red stocking hung, there are curses hurled, trees turned upside-down, and lumps of coal regifted. And that's just the beginning. In The Upside-Down Christmas Tree, anyone looking to laugh their way through the stress of the holidays will discover what truly strange goings-on go on behind closed doors in homes and towns around the world during the twelve days of Christmas.
