Rating
Tis the season to be jolly, but we all know it doesn't work like that, so stuff spending time with the family this Christmas with all that arguing, shopping and stress. Stay at home, play Scrooge and revel in this mean-spirited look at all the things you hate about yuletide. Nearly everyone has to 'do' Christmas, and from the popularity of programmes like "Grumpy Old Women at Christmas", we gather nobody is particularly happy about it. So what better way to let off steam than read about the trials and tribulations of others in this seasonal sneer to all that's rubbish about Christmas? With hints on what naff presents to buy your least favourite uncle, bundles of top tips about how to avoid having the in-laws round for the big day, samples of true 'round robin' letters, worst cracker gags, a top ten of painful Xmas accidents and real life tales of Christmas misery this is a book which puts the 'X' into an X-rated Xmas! Grab yourself an egg nog and thrill to the true stories of seasonal accidents, dreadful gifts and family arguments that abound - it'll make everything seem so much more normal! A great stocking filler!! The book is the second in a series of 'Bibles' in this format. The series also includes "The Foodies & Scoffers Bible", "The Putdowns & Insults Bible" and "The Break-Up Bible".

About the Author

Ruth Graham's first career was as a stand-up comic, where the early days of mass-rejection helped shape the tongue-in-cheek wry outlook that now defines her writing. Her other exploits have included everything from working on cruise liners, to songwriting in London, to launching and editing her own glossy interiors magazine. Despite all this, she was deemed a constant disappointment by her now-departed, very traditional Yorkshire parents, whose classic 'encouragement' included the lines, 'Well, you can't be happy all your life' and 'The sooner you learn to cook mince properly, the sooner you'll find a husband'. Despite such sage advice, Ruth preferred to fall back on a variety of interesting careers, life experiences and even more interesting men, Now in her early 40s, she's old enough to not care what the neighbours think, but young enough to still try and breakdance at parties. Now a full-time writer and part-time bellydance teacher, her motto is 'it's never too late to be a late starter'!
