In the midst of PC police, low-budget holiday movies, and mandatory in-law time, the only “Christmas spirit” on many minds is the spirit that comes in a flask.
Enter The Christmas Virtues. Harried humbug or Santa sensationalist, you’ll enjoy this collection of the good, bad, and ugly of the holidays. Twenty writers—many from the all-star cast of The Seven Deadly Virtues andThe Dadly Virtues—have convened to deliver a reason to celebrate the season. So sit back and enjoy the following tales by your favorite authors:
  • Rob Long’s “The Christmas Spirit: Scrooge Wasn’t All Wrong.” Or, “The Three Ghosts Visit Us All, Eventually.”
  • P. J. O’Rourke’s “The Commercialization of Christmas: God Moves (The Merchandise) in Mysterious Ways.”
  • Andrew Ferguson’s “Why Do We like Christmas Songs That Aren’t about Christmas?”
