Holidays on Ice

I love David Sedaris. Holidays on Ice is a collection of his holiday-related fiction and essays, a number of which I have read before.

I was not that into the fictional pieces, but I loved the essays. "SantaLand Diaries" is a classic about the time he spent working as an elf in Macy's Santa environment. "Dinah, the Christmas Whore" is great. When I first read "Jesus Shaves" I was on the floor laughing, and it's still great on a second read, as is "Six to Eight Black Men".
