Review of Scary Mommy's Guide to Surviving the Holidays

Synopsis: "From New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed “Scary Mommy” blogger Jill Smokler comes a funny and practical guide filled with essays, recipes, and tried-and-true tips sure to get any parent through the holiday season—without losing your marbles.

Ah, the holidays: a time of joy, celebration, serenity, and peace…

Unless, of course, you have whiny, screaming children demanding presents, attention, and a personal appearance by Santa or Judah the Maccabee. Then you’re screwed.

But wait, there’s hope: Scary Mommy Guide to Surviving the Holidays to the rescue!

Yes, in this handy holiday guide, you’ll find everything you need to survive the fall/winter rush of cheer in style, and without having a mental breakdown. From relatable, hilarious essays on everything from the Santa myth to being seated at the dreaded kids’ table, to easy-to-follow recipes that might include just a little something special to take the edge off (can anyone say Kahlua?), to fun and accessible gift ideas, this book is your ticket to peace of mind—and a laugh—during the busy, crazy holiday season!"

My Review: A little comic relief for this holiday season. It has a great variety of recipes, funny stories, and a little of all the holidays. I liked the collection of contributors, all had a little different outlook but all on the same torture the holidays bring. I am definitely going to make a couple of the recipes and the drinking game will be in full effect!
My Rating: Fun way to lighten up from all the stress of cleaning the house, preparing the meals, finding the perfect gifts, all with a toddler hanging from your leg or throwing an epic sized temper tantrum. I enjoyed the variety that was included. I give it a rating of Three Paws.

Note: there is the occasional cuss and some topics not suitable for everyone.
