Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

David Sedaris’s beloved holiday collection is new again with six more pieces, including a never before published story. Along with such favorites as the diaries of a Macy’s elf and the annals of two very competitive families are Sedaris’s tales of tardy trick-or-treaters (“Us and Them”); the difficulties of explaining the Easter Bunny to the French (“Jesus Shaves”); what to do when you’ve been locked out in a snowstorm (“Let It Snow”); the puzzling Christmas traditions of other nations (“Six to Eight Black Men”); what Halloween at the medical examiner”s looks like (“The Monster Mash”); and a barnyard secret Santa scheme gone awry (“Cow and Turkey”). 

No matter what your favorite holiday, you won’t want to miss celebrating it with the author who the Economist has called “one of the funniest writers alive.”

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As always, Sedaris’ best work is his sharply observed nonfiction, notably in ‘Dinah, the Christmas Whore,’ the tale of a memorable Christmas during which the young Sedaris learns to see his family in a new light. Worth the price of the book alone is the hilarious ‘SantaLand Diaries,’ Sedaris’ chronicle of his time working as an elf at Macys…Along the way, he paints a funny and sad portrait of the way the countless parents who pass through SantaLand are too busy creating an Experience to really pay attention to their children. In a sly way, it carries a holiday message all its own. Read it aloud to the adults after the kids have gone to bed.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“[A] satisfying sampler.” New York Times Book Review
Holidays on Ice now returns with a full bounty of entertaining stories at a remarkable low price. The six stories not in the original edition include tales about Halloween, secret Santas, and the difficulties of explaining the Rabbit of Easter to the French. Buy it; you deserve a laugh.” Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review
“A joy to read....Sedaris is a connoisseur of human nature at its worst.” Boston Globe
“For those dreading the holiday season, bestseller Sedaris makes life a little easier with this re-release of his uproarious essay collection, newly expanded from the original 1997 edition…Longtime fans will be happy to have all Sedaris’ holiday stories in one volume, and those who’ve managed to miss the literary funnyman couldn’t get a better gift.” Library Journal
