"Jesus in the Underwear Drawer…and other tales of holiday hysteria" is a collection of essays based on author Sandra Flahive’s remembrances of holidays that did not live up to expectations. The essays illustrate in humorous fashion that, whether it be Christmas or Labor Day or even the heralded Iowa State Fair, special occasions are not necessarily ordained to be free of the problems and foibles that afflict everyday life. The time frame of the essay collection spans the author’s life. Many of the essays recount stories from Flahive’s life as the tenth-born child in an Irish Catholic family. The title of the book, Jesus in the Underwear Drawer, is the title of one of her most popular, previously published works. It is the story of her experience as a nine-year-old girl who was asked by the stern parish priest to carry the Christ Child to the manger at midnight mass. All went well until she realized she had left “Jesus,” represented by a doll she was to carry in the procession, at home in the underwear drawer, where she had selfishly tossed him because she didn’t want to share him with her sister. Another childhood tale describes her disgust with her little brother when she realizes that he had an “accident” in the confessional and her subsequent attempt to remedy the embarrassment of it so they could complete the walk home from the church without the wet spot on the front of his trousers being noticed. Other essays in the book are more recent Erma Bombeck-type accounts of what can happen during the course of everyday life. They include, the dilemma one faces when confronted with multiple attire designations on holiday party invitations, the frightening aftermath of a champagne bottle that blows its cork in the dead of night, and the embarrassing predicament that can occur when one’s false fingernails catch fire at a Christmas party. While the essays in this collection are personal in nature, they also serve to nudge readers into recalling their own litanies of holidays-gone-wrong as they read the zany tales found in this small memoir.
Comments to eBook Jesus in the Underwear Drawer...and other tales of holiday hysteria
Hamrl
I was given this book as a gift. I'm not a big reader (have very little time to pick up a book), and this book was perfect, as it has short stories about the author's life, all of them quite entertaining. I found myself laughing outloud at some of these stories, my favorite being the mouse in the olive oil bottle. Being a cradle Catholic made the book even more enjoyable, as there were certainly parallels to my own childhood. Nice job Sandra - keep up the writing :)

This collection of tales from a large Irish American family will strike a chord with anyone who has spent a hectic holiday with multiple relatives. Always funny, and often touching, Ms. Flahive's stories manage to capture the charm and pitfalls of living with the diverse personalities that make up any family. What a great "short but sweet" gift for the holidays! (Or any other time....)

This collection of holiday "haps" and mishaps, is just what we need for these dreary winter months. Ms. Flahive captures the goings-on of an Irish Catholic familyh to which we non-Irish Catholics can certain relate. If you want a good laugh, try "Jesus in the Underwear Drawer."
