Sarah Palin to write Christmas book

March 11, 2013

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has signed a contract to write another book -- this one about Christmas.

HarperCollins has announced Palin's book, titled "A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas," will be released in November, according to the Associated Press.

The book will reportedly focus on returning the Christmas holiday back to its religious purpose and downplaying the commercialism that has come to define it.

It will also hit on the popular conservative theme of secular America's so-called "War on Christmas."

"This will be a fun, festive, thought-provoking book, which will encourage all to see what is possible when we unite in defense of our faith and ignore the politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas," Palin said in a statement release to AP.

Palin has written two books, one called "Going Rogue," about her time as the GOP's vice presidential nominee in 2008, and the other called "America by Heart."

Palin, who has commanded a devoted following in conservative circles, hasn't been in the news as much recently and didn't have her deal with Fox News renewed. She will speak later this week at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
