Almost Award-Winning Christmas Carols Holiday Hilarity By Don Allison from Faded Banner Publications. How you may ask, are these almost award-winning Christmas carol lyrics? Forgoing on two decades, veteran journalist, editor, and author Don Allison have created modern lyrics set to the tunes of our most popular classic carols as part of his long-running On My Mind column in The Bryan Times daily newspaper.
Although the carol lyrics themselves have not received any awards, Don’s On My Mind columns have received overall honors in the annual Ohio Associated Press contest. So it’s no joke – well, actually the lyrics are nothing but one big joke the carols really are almost award-winning. Readers tell Don they look forward to the Christmas carol column each year, and one reader was so taken by the lyrics that she asked for permission to perform them in a holiday skit.
My Opinion: This book is humorous and lightens the Christmas season with a laugh instead of being stressed. It is a short book so easy to read with about 28 pages.

It’s election day but Santa’s in the stores ...
