4.5 STARSA humorous look at Christmas and all it's preparation and trimmings as seen through the eyes of middle-aged New York City family and business man Mr. Baxter in the 1940s. By turns sweet and sardonic, Streeter is a master at capturing the foibles of a population becoming a bit too bogged down in hustle and bustle and commercialization of the holidays yet still very much filled with a yearning for the warm, quiet spirit of Christmas. At times he was a bit too cynical for my taste, and the [...]

This book was like taking a walk back in time. It was written in 1956. I grew up in the 60's, so, much of it was famialiar to me. I am a big fan of old black and white movies and my favorite all time movie is "It's a Wonderful Life." Edward Streeter wrote that too! Maybe that is another reason I loved this book. It is a quick read that will put you in the Christmas Spirit. The story is that of Mr. Baxter and his Christmas dilemma of wanting to cut down on expenses and not get as worked up over t [...]

Oh Edward Streeter, your world-weariness is so amusing! You also seem to have written chapters on Christmas cards and holiday parties especially for my parents' benefit. I'm just glad I don't have to wrestle through New York for the month leading up to the holidays.Also, I bought a signed copy on eBay for $7.50. Pretty rad.

Loved reading this! Though written in the 1950s, the NYC captured so wittily is completely identifiable with NYC today, from the crowded buses and subways to the Saks Christmas shopping experience to everything in between. There is nothing dated about this story!Read as my book with a red spine for 2017 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge.

I first discovered this book (or a version of it, rather) in one of my mom's old Readers Digest condensed books. This appeared in, I believe, one of the volumes for 1956. I read and re-read that story in the book for decades.After online book buying became common, I found the full book on and I immediately noticed the additional material since I practically knew the condensed version verbatim. The author, Edward Streeter, also wrote "Father of the Bride" and "Mr. Hobbs' Vacation", among other b [...]

I had very high hopes from the author of “Father of the Bride” and “Mr. Hobbs’ Vacation,” but oh well. This is a fun peak into a mid-1950’s Christmas in New York City. Actually, this is one of those novels where New York City could be considered an additional character. This feels like 2 short stories (“December” and “Christmas Eve”) that were stretched out into a novel with the additional chapters of “October” and “November.” Not a complete waste of time as is a neat [...]

I chose three books to read for Christmas. This is the only one I managed to finish. It is a light comedy about a family man coping with the challenges of Christmas, by the author of "Father of the Bride" and "Mr. Hobbs' Vacation". The story dates from the mid-1950s, which in itself serves as a descriptor for the story. I enjoyed the story and the characters. Light holiday fun.

This is a really fun book and, although it was written in the 1950's, it is timeless in many ways. When I was growing up, my mother would read it every year sometime between about Halloween and Christmas. By the time I was in High School, I started that tradition, too. Lots of fun!

This book is entirely perfect, for what it is: a droll picture of a Manhattan businessman during a typical Christmas season. The (then contemporary) mid-20th-century setting gives this book all the appeal of a totally lost era. Mr. Baxter himself is a dear. Charming.

I just love this fast read, very dated but so funny book. I like to read it every November to start the thoughts of Christmas. It's completely secular so don't expect the real story of Christmas but it is just fun. It will make you wish for a Christmas trip to New York City.

1956

Very entertaining!

Cute little commentary on Christmas festivities and the pains we go to to make it a fun relaxing time for family (tee hee hee).

As George says, "It's of its time", still a nice look at what the Christmas season was to Manhattanites in the 1950s.

Thank you, Karen! I'm loving this. :o)
