An unexpectedly sweet short novella about an old woman who rebels against her family’s Christmas tradition. This year, for the first time in half a century, she doesn’t want to host a Christmas gathering of her children and grandchildren, doesn’t want to cook her 55th Christmas turkey. She wants someone else to pick up the responsibility. When her sons start talking about her mental health in response to her verbal objections, she books a hotel and a flight a few hours away from home, hops on the plane, and leaves. She is determined to have a wonderful Christmas celebration of her own for the first time in fifty-five years. And she does.
Utterly charming. That’s how a granny should do it!
