A Christmas novella.Robert Anjer is a mid-level bureaucrat who dislikes Christmas and prefers to stay in his safe apartment or office in D.C. He finds himself being sent to the small town of Leavenworth, Washington, to supervise the shipment of the national Christmas tree. Here he meets Ken Rainey, the larger-than-life-seeming truck driver who is delivering the tree to the White House, and finds out that he must ride along in the truck with the tree. After insulting Ken while on the phone to D.C, he must now deal with the logistics of the trip. First Ken convinces Anjer that the clothes he has with him are inadequate for the trip. Anjer's education begins with a shopping trip to purchase clothes adequate for the journey. He is given a peek into the life of a long-haul driver, while meeting some wonderful people along the way. While dealing with the weather in Wyoming and helping a family escape the danger of an impending storm, he gets a view of America he never knew existed. The scenery opens up his eyes to just a glimpse of what America has to offer. Other adventures await the duo as they make their way to the delivery in D.C. This is not really a religious book but does give a view of Christmas as a time of giving and caring about our fellow man. It is also just a glimpse into the lives of the men and women who travel the open road to deliver all the goods we consume as a nation.
Imagine a Christmas story told by an author who needed to sell a warehouse full of fruitless lemon trees? Then this is the Christmas story you have to hear... The North Pole is in crisis! Because of a few mischievous elves working in Santa's Coal Division, bad boys and girls were given interesting figurines made of coal. So interesting that even good children wanted them, causing Santa to lose all heart. Santa locks himself away, causing all sorts of chaos. Randolph, the only reindeer working at the Coal Division, is less than enthused to help solve the crisis. A reindeer with a checkered past, he sourly agrees to help the Coal Division and Santa's reindeer travel to the Valley of the Last-Minute Gifts to retrieve leftover coal figurines. There, he meets the deer of his dreams and the Little bullied boy, the owner of the Lemon, Lemon Tree. Randolph and the others must convince the boy, to give back carved coal the boy uses to his precious Lemon, Lemon Tree from freezing. Because of this, the team must artfully compromise to return Santa his Christmas Cheer.
