Every year, the commanding Olive Green directs the Christmas pageant for the Little Church in the Vale, but there is always something missing. Trying to get it right this year, she hires the flashy Hollywood Theater of Peace and Tidings of Great Joy Traveling Troupe with their real feather angel wings, a band and a camel! But when a snowstorm keeps Hollywood out, Olive’s friends convince her to create a pageant with the church members already there. Everyone wants in on the act, from the feuding church board members who suddenly discover harmony, to the women’s auxiliary singing tidings of comfort and pie. The best-loved songs of Christmas and a sweet, funny story filled with memorable characters combine to teach a gentle lesson – Christmas is not in the flash and the feathers but in the true gift of that holy night so long ago.
