Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la la la la la. How wonderful the old carol sounds. A vision of warm family gatherings peacefully celebrating the holiday season comes to mind. But wait, this doesn't sound like a peaceful family get-together. What is happening here? Deck the walls with mashed potatoes! Fa la la la la la la la la. Make a snowman with tomatoes. Fa la la la la la la la la. Author Erin Dealey has taken the old holiday classic and turned it on its head. In her riotous, raucous rendition of a family meal gone hilariously awry, you'll find food hockey, vegetable sculptures, crashing dishes, and grown-ups wondering what has gone wrong. From "Feed the dog our peas and carrots" to "Food tastes better when you wear it," readers young and old will never forget this new take on an old holiday carol!

This comical parody of the sixteenth century Christmas carol "Deck the Halls" begins with the stage-setting phrase, "Deck the Walls with mashed potatoes." Nevertheless a good time is had by all as the relatives realize in the end what they are thankful for.
