The Sophistareaders ~ Skipping Christmas


Hey Ya’ll! Well the book for December was very appropriately picked by Laura! It was called Skipping Christmas by John Grisham. It is the book that the movie Christmas with the Kranks was based off of. It was a fun read and a fun book club meeting too!


We had Japanese! I had the Fuji roll… and it was delicious!! We just sat around and discussed the book. Laura asked us if we could ever “skip Christmas” and not celebrate. Most of us decided that we couldn’t . One of the great things about Christmas and most major holidays are the family traditions that come right along with it. I don’t think I could give up waking up to a fire on Christmas morning with my family all around eating Cinnamon rolls!! Or the multitude of card games that follow. We love to play cards in my family (all of us are the worst losers too!! It makes it very interesting!!) Pus the most important thing about Christmas is the real meaning behind it. I don’t think I could go a year without stopping to be thankful for the miraculous beginning of my faith!

So Laura thanks for the great pick! and I need to order our next book! I love this little group of people called the Sophistareaders! I couldn’t ask for a better bunch!

What about you? Could you ever skip Christmas?


  1. I'm going to have to say that I probably couldn't skip Christmas. I'm just too traditional and I love Christmas with my family. It would be less stressful though!

  2. Mark,

    It really WAS a fun meeting! I always have fun hanging out with you:) I'm like you in that I could never totally SKIP Christmas because I love celebrating Jesus, too! Looking forward to our next meeting!


What You Say Matters too!! Talk to me!
