Essays Give New Meaning to Holidays

Would you listen to Happy and Merry again? Why?

Yes, I recently lost my husband, and this and other books I've read in the past few weeks have helped me escape to other families' holidays.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The authors tell their own personal stories, and I like them both as characters.

What about Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella ’s performance did you like?

I liked the feeling that they were talking to me, not just reading me their stories.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I don't think any particular part of the book moved me, but my favorite essay was the one about the guilt meter and the overflowing toilet. When I read about others' unfortunate experiences, it gives me a whole new perspective on life because it makes me thankful such experiences haven't happened to me.

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book to anyone who likes humorous, thought-provoking holiday essays. .
