The Blurb

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Ruth has been roped in to a more active role in her family’s Christmas celebrations. Her mother – incapacitated after falling over a rogue toolbox – has been forced to buy presents, entertain guests, cook Christmas dinner and create the perfect festive event. But is the pressure just too much?

The Review

This book, whilst being short – a half an hour read – is the perfect tonic for those dreading the festive season. There is something about Christmas that fills people with dread. They love the whole holiday spirit and the whole gift giving and receiving and the eating until you get the met sweats but the lead up to Christmas can be fraught with all kinds of unnecessary drama and expense.

What Jennifer Joyce does in her story A Beginner’s Guide to Christmas is remind us of all the fun times ahead whilst also offering rather precise interludes of advice.

This short story will get you in the mood for Christmas but will also remind you that preparation is the key!

A Beginner’s Guide to Christmas by Jennifer Joyce is available now.
