From Publishers Weekly:

From chapter one, entitled "Not Really an Introduction," to a subjective epilogue on who sings the best cover versions of various Christmas classics, it's clear that this book is meant to be Fun with a capital F. The Walkers offer craft suggestions (he quilts and sews) and recipes (she bakes), as well as tips on holiday movies, Christmas pageants, "Secret Santa" exchanges, decorating and getting away from it all. They also talk about how couples can learn from one another's family traditions while forging their own new ones-especially if, as in their case, the couple has no children. The Walkers' entertaining, funny book will help to make the season bright.
