Some people love Christmas for religious reasons, others prefer it for the food, drink and parties, but for some other people, it’s just another time of year to get up to mischief. This anthology is filled with tales of not-so-happy Christmases, tales that they don’t want to tell you about in the movies or songs.
It’s time to break out your new Christmas slippers, rip open a box of chocolates and pour yourself a drink. Lock your doors and get comfy. You’re in for one helluva ride.
Merry Christmas from all of us!

Anthologies can be difficult to review. I’m noticing that more and more of my anthology reviews sound strikingly alike and that’s a bit frustrating as a reviewer. There is really only so much one can say about a collection of stories where they can find little to no complaints with. That’s the problem I’m having today.
I’ve come to love the anthologies put together by Kevin J. Kennedy. I have yet to be disappointed by any of his work. With any anthology, there are some stories that resonate more with some people than others. Some stories I absolutely adored, and others that while good, just wasn’t my bag. That being said, there is something for everyone.
There’s something disturbing about Horror stories based on Christmas, but it’s that fun part of disturbing that reminds the reader that not everything is sugarplums and Santa Claus. Overall, this is another great anthology by an author I have come to trust to deliver the best of the best.
