Follow along with the Grimes family as you read about some of their horror-filled, wacky, and comical Christmases. Among the cast of characters are the parents, Elise and Bob; their young son, Jimmy; and Jimmy’s estranged paternal grandmother, Winnie. And, of course, St. Nick, together with some of his friends.
