On Strike for Christmas - Sheila Roberts

I just finished reading this book yesterday and it was again really enjoyable reading Sheila Roberts' books. It really leaves me looking forward to reading more of her books :> In On Strike for Christmas, the husbands' awkward, often disastrous handling of routine tasks their wives normally do for Christmas was really comical and i found myself laughing while reading! I also loves how the writer tries to emphasize the importance of not taking the little things in life and your love ones for granted.

Christmas is fast approaching and many of the women in the town of Holly are bracing themselves for stress, overwork, and very little understanding or appreciation from the men in their lives. But then inspiration hits. Joy Robertson, Laura Fredericks, and their knitting buddies decide to “go on strike” and give the men an opportunity to see firsthand what it takes to make the holidays merry and bright.

Soon other women are joining in and husbands all over town are getting a crash course in decorating, shopping, and what to wear to see Santa, and are searching frantically for an interpreter to translate the mysteries of holiday recipes. The men may just come to appreciate the holidays after walking a mall in their wives’ high heels. But maybe the women will learn something, too...
