Overview

Does the thought of mistletoe give you hives?
Does the sound of jingling bells
instill fear in your heart?
Do you hide under the covers from the day after
Thanksgiving till New Year's Day?
And even if you love Christmas, do the
hyperconsumerism, overindulgence, and
tinsel-covered everything make you crazy?

If you said yes to any of these questions, this is the book for you. You are not alone. Everyone has a Christmas-nightmare story to tell. Some of the best writers around have gone through some of the worst Christmases ever. Their tales of holly-draped horror are gathered here for your amusement, from NEAL POLLACK's Christmas-ham disaster to the accidental Santahood of JONI RODGERS to BINNIE KIRSHENBAUM's receiving what may be the worst gift ever given. And Stanley Bing gives us a peek at the lonely guy's Xmas feast. All this, plus many more recollections of Worst Noels past.

So pour yourself a glass of eggnog, chisel off a piece of rock-hard fruitcake, and curl up in the big comfy chair by the fireplace where the stockings have been hung with such care -- and settle in to read The Worst Noel.

    Not my idea of 'hilarious' - or of Noel

    If you are expecting heartwarming tales of the cat licking the butter cube just before your guests sit down to the big Christmas dinner, or of the dog stealing the turkey off the table, you won't find them here. I don't think there's a place in a supposedly humorous Christmas anthology for a story about spending the holiday in Paris in a drug- and drink-induced haze as the odd man out, or for the unmetered use of profanity. There is far too much focus on competition/confusion between religions, and far too little on mishaps and misunderstandings that cause angst but that in the end have some relation to the true meaning of holiday spirit, whatever your religious (or non-religous) beliefs.
