Publisher's Summary

George Mahood had a nice, easy, comfortable life. He had a job, a house, a wife, and kids. But something was missing. He was stuck in a routine of working, changing nappies, and cleaning up cat sick. He felt like he was missing out on a lot of what the world had to offer. He then discovered that it was Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. The day after that was National Curmudgeon Day, and the day after that was Inane Answering Machine Message Day.

In fact, the calendar is full of these quirky, weird, and wonderful events. He realized that somebody somewhere had created these holidays, believing that they were important enough to warrant their own official day. Surely he should therefore be more appreciative of their existence? So he decided to try and celebrate them all. As you do. He hoped that at the end of the challenge he would be transformed into a happier, more intelligent and more content person.

Follow George on his hilarious, life-changing adventure as he tries to balance his normal life with a wealth of new experiences, people, facts, and ridiculous situations. It's a rip-roaring, life-affirming, roller coaster of a ride, where every day is a holiday.

    "Loved It"

    Great listen. I'm totally hooked on George Mahood's humor and storytelling. You get to learn a lot about his family and get to feel you know them at some point.

    "Every Day is a Holiday"

    A very easy listen with several laugh at loud moments. Looking forward to his next audible book. I might have to give celebrating all the holidays a try! George does have a lovely family.

    "George Mahood Is One of the World's Best Kept Secrets"

    I love the wacky adventures of George and his conversational approach. From the interesting adventures before he married to his hilarious experiences as a father, every day is an adventure, and s holiday! This book was the first I've listened to and I found it was an enjoyable way to "read" this title.

    "Pleasant"

    George Mahood is a favorite so I've read/listened to them all. This one was a bit weaker than some of his others but still a pleasant listen with some funny parts sprinkled here and there.
    Narrator had a nice voice also.

    "George Mahood does it again"

    Since coming across George Mahood in Free Country I have enjoyed reading all his other offerings and thoroughly recommended his work, you feel as though you are accompanying him through his daily adventures and there are some genuine laugh out loud moments I hope to see more off his books available on Audible.

    "Not very inspiring book"
    Would you try another book written by George Mahood or narrated by James Elliott?

    Maybe


    What was most disappointing about George Mahood’s story?

    Disjointed! The idea is interesting but the book was really disjointed with no story to tell.


    What didn’t you like about James Elliott’s performance?

    A bit monotone and tried hard to sound funny but I think it was most due to the book rather than James Elliott
