Skipping Christmas

Our children and grandchildren are scattered all over the world this year at Christmas time. As a result, I have felt much like Luther, the primary male character in Skipping Christmas. It is a very well-written book by John Grisham, and it captures some, but far from all, of my feelings; unfortunately, the plot is too sappy for words. Too bad. It is also available on DVD, as Christmas with the Kranks.

Is it just me, or does Luther seem a lot like the primary male character in The King of Torts?

Update: This is too weird for words. We've just learned that the whole famn damily will be descending upon us for a post-Christmas get-together on January 2nd. Fortunately, we have over a week to get ready.
