Theirs will be the only house on the street without a rooftop Frosty the snowman; they won't be hosting their annual Christmas Eve bash; they aren't even going to have a tree. They won't need one, because come December 25 they're setting sail on a Caribbean cruise. But, as this weary couple is about to discover, skipping Christmas brings enormous consequences - and isn't half as easy as they'd imagined. The novel behind the movie CHRISTMAS WITH THE KRANKS

Life without Easter for once. Imagine that. I entertained the thought to skip Easter this year. No crowded shopping centers, no Easter bunny, no jelly beans and marshmallow candy, no lamb shaped from butter, no kielbasa, ham, or dyed eggs. No Easter parade. No church services! No blessed basket of food before Easter eve's start to enjoy Easter Sunday! Not even a new suit, hat, or bonnet. I'd be the Easter crank. Skip it. That's just what I had in mind after Christmas Day. Skip Easter. Who needs the flu, the hassles, the traffic and parking lots at stores, the expectations we have of one another, and, the picture-perfect card with the entire family, or else! No decorations? Not even the usual rites of Spring's baseball season with the Detroit Tigers? Forget it! All of it. A trip to Easter Island to escape this holiest day of the calendar year seems so nice. However, as lessons were learned, skipping Easter comes with consequences. It isn't accomplished as easily as I had imagined. Lessons were learned, and, even came alive with fresh, vibrant ways as my idea was explored amid the craziness, chaos and frenzy that marks this holiday tradition. Easter would not be the same, indeed. For sure. Happy Easter!
