On Strike for Christmas - Sheila Roberts

This was such a good book! Talk about your life lessons. I did feel for these women who felt the need, for various reasons, to go on strike for the holidays. One because the husband didn't like the partying kind of celebrations, one because her husband liked it too much, others for reasons in between. They all put their significant others in charge of the holiday. To include cooking, decorating, getting the costumes for the holiday pageants, gift purchase, etc. All with varying degrees of very amusing results. All lessons learned on all sides of the households.

It made me very glad to be married to my sweetie-pie who loves Christmas as much as I. We decorate and bake and cook together. He did mention that we might not have to buy decorations any more except maybe the ones we can place around the house. Then the containers were empty and the tree still had room for more decorations. He conceded that it will be okay to keep getting them each year.

This is a highly recommendable book!!
