There'll be no question about getting into the spirit of the holiday season if you have a copy of this little book on hand. Merry Christmas From... is a collection of 150 Christmas cards. The subtitle describes them as cards "You Wish You'd Received." Maybe yes, maybe no. Whether or not you wish they'd been dropped in your mail many of them are laugh-out-loud funny, others are tender, touching, all are highly imaginative, and really were sent.

Author Robert has a rather unusual passion - Christmas cards. She's spent several years finding all she can, and those included in this little volume are her best picks.

It's an easy guess that many folks devote their cards to their children, but few would think of posing their darlings as wee fairies among daffodils with the greeting reading "Have a fairy Merry Christmas" or placing their tiny baby under a Christmas tree with the greeting "God made her for us...Merry Christmas."

People are also funny and tender when it comes to sending photos of their pets. Picture a contented canine snoozing in a Santa cap, another in pseudo antlers asking "Do these antlers make me look fat?"

What photo would you think appropriate to pair with Joan Rivers' line "The only thing you don't want to find in your stocking on Christmas morning is your husband"?

There's something for everyone in Merry Christmas From... Enjoy!
