Skipping Christmas by John Grisham


Wednesday, December 26, 2001 through Friday, January 4, 2002. Read by Jim Fleming.

Luther and Nora Krank, having sent their daughter off to work for the Peace Corps, sense an opportunity. “We won’t do Christmas,” says Luther, and books a cruise instead. Their neighbors find this decision unseemly, to say the least, and the humor of the story is in how the Kranks respond to pressure. The Kranks may want to skip Christmas, but you won’t.
