The Christmas Turkeys and Other Misadventures of the Season | [Gerald R. Toner]

The Christmas Turkeys and Other Misadventures of the Season

Whether Christmas is a time of unbridled joy, a season of past reflections, or an ordeal to be endured until the return to normalcy after the New Year, its impact is pervasive in most of our lives. Everyone's feelings are super sensitized, every emotion is heightened. The happy become giddy, the sad become despondent, the lonely become lonelier – unless, yes unless – the magic of Christmas has its way. So it is for the characters in these stories.

Publisher's Summary

Whether Christmas is a time of unbridled joy, a season of past reflections, or an ordeal to be endured until the return to normalcy after the New Year, its impact is pervasive in most of our lives. Everyone's feelings are super sensitized, every emotion is heightened. The happy become giddy, the sad become despondent, the lonely become lonelier - unless, yes, unless - the magic of Christmas has its way.

So it is for the characters in these stories. They are ordinary people, grinding through the ordinary events of ordinary Decembers. But all find a moment of Christmas magic in the midst of their misadventures that changes the perspective - making the ordinary slightly extraordinary.

In this new collection of Christmas stories, Gerald R Toner again reminds us that small miracles are revealed during the holidays. Styled 'misadventures of the season', these contemporary tales tell us that the best Christmas gifts are not wrapped in colorful paper and ribbon, but arise from the human spirit. So pour a glass of Yuletide cheer or gather the family around steaming cups of hot chocolate and enjoy!

    "Full of Christmas Spirit!"

    This is a great book of short stories about wonderful, everyday Christmas stories! Each story is unique- and full of holiday wonder. My favorite was the story about the party in the Village. As I listened I felt like I was there at the party and my heart ached for the neighbor. The ending was unexpected and made me think about the people who live near me and how we really don't take time to know our neighbors. A truly wonderful book!
