Holiday trivia from best-selling author of the arcane, Joey Green, who has been called "a connoisseur of unconventionality." Priced and sized to fit perfectly in a stocking. The perfect gift for the Christmas-obsessed

Christmas compiles the mishaps, the mayhem, the hideous sweaters and inedible fruitcakes, the momentous births and untimely deaths, and the crimes and catastrophes that have taken place on Christmas. Where else would you learn that Werner Erhard send out 62,824 personal greeting cards? Or that 5,000 people dressed as Santa Claus descended on the town of Porto, Portugal to break a world record? Chapters detail all things weird, from traditions to trees, festivities to tidings.

The quirky design is illustrated by the Tim Burton-esqe artwork of Lisa K. Weber.

In Christmas , Joey Green has unearthed stockings-full of juicy holiday curiosities for an offbeat look at a heartfelt tradition--and a one-size-fits-all Christmas present no one will ever return!
