Summary
Following a heated argument with her husband, Joy Robertson decides to give him the quiet Christmas he claims to want and go on strike for the holidays--no shopping, baking, decorating, wrapping, or entertaining--and when the members of her knitting group hear her plan, they decide to join in, attracting the attention of the local news media and sparking a war of the sexes in the small town of Holly
Summary
Tired of their husbands' refusal to share Christmas responsibilities and the lack of appreciation, Joy, Laura, and other women of Holly decide to stage a boycott in order to make the men decorate, mail cards, shop for gifts, and clean up the holiday mess
