Author Bio:

WILLIAM J. VINSON is a character of dubious origins, unusual vocations and regrettable pursuits. His other writings have even less purpose then this treatise, unless kindling is required. He has been overly educated, having received a B.A. and M.B.A. for no Earthly reasons.

Back Cover Text:

The ancient tales and distant origins of Christmas and its traditions have long been of very little interest to the right thinking. This book seeks to arm the know-it-all, the boor, the acid-tempered and other social miscreants with information designed to harass the sensibilities of the more balanced celebrants of Christmas.

Early scorn for Vinson’s Christmas: And Other Oddities…

“A work of utter madness.” – The London Chronicle

“An inelegant assortment of claptrap, poppycock, balderdash and rubbish with the aftertaste of an ill-stored cod.” – Lloyd’s Illustrated Newspaper

“Repellent tripe of the first order… a tome so vile as to shame Gutenberg himself.” – The Hull Packet
