The Plot:

In this memory piece, the audience is transported back to the Christmas of 1933, in the depths of the Great Depression. On the rural North Carolina farm of the Morgan family, preparations for the holiday are underway. The four Morgan daughters (Sarah, Della, Grace and Maggie) are decorating the family tree and rehearsing their song for the annual high school pageant. Their mother Nina keeps the house and the girls in order. Their father Henry labors at his small blacksmith’s shop, trying to supplement the family income during hard times. As Henry observes the daily parade of jobless neighbors making their way into the nearby town looking for work, he hatches an idea: invite these struggling souls into the Morgan home for a brief rest, a cup of coffee and few moments of fellowship. Through these visitors the Morgan girls see the world in a new way, and valuable life lessons are discovered. Told in flashbacks through the Morgans’ granddaughter, “The Christmas House” is a warm and inviting look into the lives of a family united in difficult days by love, faith and compassion.
