What you need to know before your trail

Christmas is of course a time to celebrate but the trouble is, what this celebration includes –  crowded shops, corny office parties, very rich food that makes you ill,   yet another set of shower gels.. no to mention the family you would rather avoid.

Luther and Nora Krank decide that they’ll skip the holiday altogether. Christmas is banned because come December 25 they’re setting sail on a Caribbean cruise. But, as this weary couple is about to discover, skipping Christmas brings enormous consequences – and isn’t half as easy as they’d imagined.

“A snap of the fingers and it’s January 2. No tree, no shopping, no meaningless gifts, no tipping, no clutter and wrappings, no traffic and crowds no fruitcakes, no liquor and hams that no one needed, no “Rudolph” and “frosty”, no office party…”
