The Scrooge Countdown Continues...

4. Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time, 2003

“Most murders are committed by someone who is known to the victim. In fact, you are most likely to be murdered by a member of your own family on Christmas day.”

5. Nikki Sixx, The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star, 2007

“There is something about spending Christmas alone, naked, sitting by the Christmas tree gripping a shotgun, that lets you know your life is spinning dangerously outta control.”

6. Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar, 1963

“I felt overstuffed and dull and disappointed, the way I always do the day after Christmas, as if whatever it was the pine boughs and the candles and the silver and gilt-ribboned presents and the birch-log fires and the Christmas turkey and the carols at the piano promised never came to pass.”

7. Graham Greene, Travels With My Aunt, 1969

“Christmas it seems to me is a necessary festival; we require a season when we can regret all the flaws in our human relationships: it is the feast of failure, sad but consoling.”

8. Mario Puzo, The Godfather, 1969

“It was not perhaps the warmest friendship in the world, they would not send each other Christmas gift greetings, but they would not murder each other.”
