Lewis Black - I'm Dreaming Of a Black Christmas

Holidays are getting close and everybody is preparing for Christmas,a time of peace on earth and goodwill toward all.

Well, not for Lewis Black.Lewis Black, for those of you who don't know him, is a foul-mouthed, self-effacing Jewish comedian who being Jewish, he never really celebrated Christmas when he was a child. He celebrated Hanukkah, or as he has called it in a past stand-up special, a "back-to-school" holiday.

He talks about the crippling loneliness he feels on Christmas morning because he is unmarried and childless.

He says humbug to the Christmas traditions and trappings that make the holiday memorable.

In "I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas", his hilarious and sharply observed book about the holiday, Lewis writes down his own personal look at what’s wrong with Christmas, and as Stephen King says, it's seen through the eyes of “the most engagingly pissed-off comedian ever.”

From his own Christmas rituals, witch have absolutely nothing to do with presents or the Christmas tree or Rudolph, to his own eccentric experiences with the holiday (including a USO Christmas tour and playing Santa Claus in full regalia), I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas is classic Lewis: funny, razor-sharp, insightful, and honest.

It is truly a wonderful addition to the book, and it really doesn't feel tacked on at all. Christmas is a time when we reflect on what we love in life, and one of the things I think we all love is Freedom.

As for Lewis, he doesn't regret opening so much and being so personal."It's honest", he says."It's who I am".

He is also Warning readers to ignore the book if they have a deep attachment to Christmastime.

I say it's worth reading it but you must know that you might never think of Christmas in the same way.
