Just in time for the holidays, Sarah Palin will release a book defending Christmas from the "politically correct Scrooges" who are waging the
"War on Christmas."

The book, called "A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas," will be released through HarperCollins in November.


"Amidst the fragility of this politically correct era, it is imperative that we stand up for our beliefs before the element of faith in a glorious and traditional holiday like Christmas is marginalized and ignored," Palin said in a statement released through HarperCollins, the Associated Press reports. "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."

According to the publisher, the book will also push for "preserving Jesus Christ in Christmas - whether in public displays, school concerts (or) pageants."
