Author Christmas Philip offers snapshots of his drifter life

News Image

Christmas Philip has lived a rather unconventional life with an equally unconventional outlook. A self-described “drifter,” he has lived and traveled all over the world, a journey that mirrors mankind’s search for happiness and acceptance. In his first book, “Rip Off Christmas” (published by AuthorHouse UK), he offers snapshots into his interesting life and the moments and people that made it more meaningful.

“Rip Off Christmas ” follows Philip’s journey beginning with his childhood in Jamaica. From there, the compelling narrator takes readers along with him to England where he spent his adolescence; a time marked by loneliness and a yearning for the life and friendships he left behind in Jamaica. Philip also shares his travels to Africa where he sought his roots and happiness.

Told with wit and insight, “Rip Off Christmas” is a story of one man’s journey to find his place in the world and a shining testament to the indomitable human spirit.

An excerpt from the book reads:

“My story begins 1952. I am Christmas the drifter, my search begins in Jamaica. I set on my journey with no saddlebags and no sandals in the parish of St Ann’s Jamaica. I am inviting you to come with me on an adventure. The reason why my grandmother gave me the name Christmas was because I was born around the Christmas season and it was an excited time for all of my families.”
