Publisher's Summary

As Christmas approaches, John, a modern-day working father, seems a little more stressed out than usual. With his lovely wife, Eve, and adoring teenage children, Chris, Brooke, and little Anna-Magdalena at his side, what could possibly go wrong? Well, just about everything - including an unexpected visit from his in-laws, the never-ending seasonal to-do list, the annoying neighborhood kids, and that man-eating Christmas tree. And through it all, his smiling coworker, Dennis, sets him up for the ultimate disaster at work.

Join John and his family as they take you on a madcap dash through the festive season filled with laughter, tears, reconciliation, friendship, and joy. It's a holiday treat for the whole family!

This full-cast dramatization by award-winning radio dramatist George Zarr features original music and engaging sound effects.

Took Some Getting Used To, But ...

I like it! With few exceptions (like some of the children), the voice acting was amateurish and unconvincing at best, and the overall story was cheesy, exaggerated, and predictable, perhaps even for some younger readers, yet somehow and oddly enough, I ended up warming to it! When asked by an Audible Customer Service Rep. if I wanted to return it, I surprised myself by responding with a vehement, "No!" and instead, clutched it to myself protectively. The parents keep loving each other despite becoming exasperated , the kids are refreshingly respectful to the adults and kind to one another, the music is
original, and it unself-consciously acknowledges that Christmas actually has something to do with Christ. It's definitely not for everybody, and my guess is that many will be (and will remain) disappointed with it, just as I initially was, but it's mine for keeps, and I'm happily stuck with it now.
