Spartanburg, NC (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Kirk Neely has delighted readers with his down-home stories in the award-winning A Good Mule is Hard to Find and, more recently, in Banjos, Barbecue, and Boiled Peanuts. Now, just in time for the holidays, Neely brings his knack for storytelling to Santa Almost Got Caught: Stories for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year.
In this long-anticipated volume, readers get tales about a flaming Advent wreath and the Christmas tree emergency that required an exterminator. Neely takes his readers into the woods in search of the perfect red cedar Christmas tree. He’ll remind them of the real reason sweet potatoes were part of holiday meals.
An ordained minister and pastor for more than 45 years, Neely guides his readers through the winter holiday season, spinning yarns that celebrate Thanksgiving Advent, Christmas, the New Year, and Epiphany. The title story reveals both a young boy’s determination to see St. Nick and the greatest Christmas gift of all, the gift of love.
Each chapter features the Neelly's wit and humor, as well as spiritual depth, wisdom and insight garnered from his pastoral and personal experience. Sometimes you will chuckle, sometimes you will shed a tear, and sometimes both will come within the same reading.
Kirk Neely has been called an old-fashioned Southern storyteller. These stories will help everyone take a deep breath and seek a less hectic pace so their holidays can become holy days. Each brief reflection can be read in one sitting while waiting in a carpool line to pick up a child, lingering over a morning cup of coffee or before turning in at night. Santa Almost Got Caught promises to become a holiday classic.
