Looking to share some holiday humor this year?
A perfect and inexpensive way to do just that is the book “Almost Award Winning Christmas Carols: Holiday Hilarity by Don Allison”, a Faded Banner Publications title.
How, you may ask, are these almost award-winning Christmas carol lyrics?
For going on two decades, veteran journalist, editor and author Don Allison has created modern lyrics set to the tunes of our most popular classic carols as part of his long running On My Mind column in The Bryan Times daily newspaper. Although the carol lyrics themselves have not received any awards, Don’s On My Mind columns have received overall honors in the annual Ohio Associated Press contest. So it’s no joke – well, actually the lyrics are nothing but one big joke – the carols really are almost award winning.
These lyrics shed a humorous light on our modern holiday traditions, trials and tribulations.
Readers tell Don they look forward to the Christmas carol column each year, and one reader was so taken by the lyrics that she asked for permission to perform them in a holiday skit!

Amazon refused to list this as an e-book under the original title, saying using the word award in the title was misleading. So, it's the same book with a different, tongu-in-cheek title.
