In this wonderful bite-size slice of yuletide magic, the very future of Christmas is in doubt. It's Christmas Eve, but just at the moment when he should be putting on his red suit and checking his beard for snowy whiteness, Santa is sitting in his underwear, drinking hot chocolate and singing the blues. Fortunately, anyone who thinks that Christmas can no longer be left in the hands of little people in green outfits, is about to be proved wrong. With fabulous characters and madcap rhymes,
SANTA'S CHRISTMAS EVE BLUES is set to become a seasonal favourite with young and old for generations to come.
SANTA'S CHRISTMAS EVE BLUES is a 5000-word short story.
"A cute little story with more than a disturbing truth about what Christmas has become." -- Not The Baseball Pitcher
Short story – so a short review!
This was another short read and something a bit topical for the time of year, even though I’m not yet in the festive spirit. Lindsay waxes satirically on what Christmas has become – big business, rampant commercialism and profit. Interesting enough and a decent way to spend the best part of an hour.
I have read a few of his novels mainly from his humourous Barney Thomson, serial killing barber series. I will try and read something else by him in 2014 for my Scottish challenge.
