Sarah Palin to Write Christmas Book

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin is coming out with a new book, just in time for the holidays.

A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas will be published in November.

It's about "reserving Jesus Christ in Christmas" and will "illustrate the reasons why the celebration of Jesus Christ's nativity is the centerpiece of [Palin's] faith."

Thumbs Up From Sarah Palin

"This will be a fun, festive, thought-provoking book," Palin promises.

The former Alaska Governor and V.P. candidate said in a statement:

"Amidst the fragility of this politically correct era, it is imperative that we stand up for our beliefs before the element of faith in a glorious and traditional holiday like Christmas is marginalized."

"This will encourage all to see what is possible when we unite in defense of our faith and ignore the politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas."

Palin quit Fox News in January, citing a need to find a broader audience.

Will she find it with her holiday tome? Only time will tell.

... "A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas," scheduled for November. HarperCollins announced Monday that the book will criticize the "over-commercialism" and "homogenization" of Christmas ... To be released in November ... just in time to make an excellent stocking stuffer for Xmas ... for people who don't believe in the use of purchased gifts and the commercialization of this Christian holiday.
Which begs the question -- will Sarah be donating all profits to food banks and homeless shelters, or will the proceeds be added to the coffers of SarahPAC (read - the Sarah Palin self-indulgent, self-promotion tour fund)? By the way, how does Palin's message of "reducing the commercialization of Xmas" jive with her continual promotion of "free market capitalism"? Won't the toy, jewelry, and tech gadget industries be upset with her raining on their holiday season sales parade? In any case, I'm looking forward to Palin's next book: "Going Gas Range -- 101 Moose Meals, from Tundra to Table."
Unlike her previous (ghost-written) efforts, this one will be non-fiction.

Haha! Well, I don't think Christmas will go anywhere anytime soon - but does this lady know the church just stole the Midwinter Sacrifice (midvinterblot, jul), because all the heathens were partying then anyway, and claimed Jesus was born at that time although he wasn't? In my country Christmas is still called Jul (Yule), we say God (Good) Jul! to each other and we eat the same things the Vikings ate, sausages and ham and so on. Yes, the Christians nicked the holiday and succeeded 99% - but not 100%! Looking forward to seeing Palin have Jesus'es parents ride to Betlehem on a dinosaur... ;)

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
