AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The narrator leaves work early on Christmas Eve so that he can call in to the shops and purchase some Christmas presents for his family. Upon leaving the store he finds his pocket has been 'picked'. He arrives home and opens the door upon domestic upheaval, with his wife and four children all coping with various disasters, and thus begins a very chaotic Christmas.
