Overview

Politically Correct Holiday Stories by James Finn Garner

The #1 bestselling author of Once Upon a More Enlightened Time reads his Pollitically Correct holiday gift.


Holiday tales have long delighted and entertained us, but until now they've always been burdened with society's skewed values and mores. Stories that reinforce the stifling class system (Dickens' A Christmas Carol), legitimize the stereotype of a merry, overweight patriarchal oppressor (Santa Claus in The Night Before Christmas) and justify the domestication and subjugation of wild animals (Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer) abound in the literature and lore of this season.


Now James Finn Garner has stepped in to revise and improve these familiar tales to free our social consciousness from the ghost of prejudice past. From the newly revised "Twas the Night Before Solstice" to "Rudolph the Nasally Empowered Reindeer," these stories rekindle the true holiday spirit and redefine the idea of "good will to all men" to include womyn, pre-adults and companion animals as well.


Yes, the international bestselling author of Politically Correct Bedtime Stories and Once Upon a More Enlightened Time is back again, to offer a holiday gift that will fit all sizes, welcome all persuasions and nonpersuasions, and be treasured for politically correct generations to come.

This book is so funny, but yet so much of it rings true. Rudolph starts a union & tries to improve working conditions of the reindeer, the kids in the Night before Solstice free Santa's reindeer and the Father is disgusted by the boys Santa has (play guns, EZ bake ovens and Barbies - OH NO! so stereotypical and wrong gifts for children!). Frosty marches to DC (rather than through the town ) to protest against Global Warming before he melts, of course). I laughed out loud as a I read this book. It's a quick read and will definitely make anyone relax during the busy and hectic schedules of the holiday season.

Although this book was written in 1995, it's lessons ring as true today as they did in the era in which it was written. The government still oppresses persuns of snow. Nutcrackers continue to sexually harass young females. This book helps us to realize that instead of looking within ourselves to find the true meaning of Christmas, we should realize that our faults are not our own; they are the work of others, we are all just they results of the conditions of our environment.

This book is so funny. I read it, and almost wet my pants. You'll love the story of Rudolf, the nasally empowered reindeer.

If you ever want to prove to anyone just how ridiculous political correctness is, this is the book. I believe one of our problems is that we have lost the ability to laugh at ourselves. When we lose our sense of humor things go downhill and we all know what a great place we are in right now (sarcasm)
