25 Days of Christmas: Plays

I know a few of you have Christmas Programs you go to (or are super involved with) but what about local plays or Christmas plays?

Some of the best that play around here are The Nutcracker, A Christmas Carol and a local private school puts on a huge production every year.

Every year the town above me puts on The Nutcracker so it has become a tradition around here for most of the family to trudge up the hill to go see the play. Typically, I don't want to sit through a play (some more than others) but there are some plays worth seeing.

Book Description:
Christmas has always been a sad time for young widow Holly Brown, so when she's asked to look after a remote house on the Lancashire moors, the opportunity to hide herself away is irresistible -- the perfect excuse to forget about the festivities.

Sculptor, Jude Martland, is determined that this year there will be no Christmas after his brother runs off with his fiancee and he is keen to avoid the family home. However, he will have to return by the twelfth night of the festivities, when the hamlet of Little Mumming hold their historic festivities and all of his family are required to attend.

Meanwhile, Holly is finding that if she wants to avoid Christmas, she has come to the wrong place. When Jude unexpectedly returns on Christmas Eve he is far from delighted to discover that Holly seems to be holding the very family party he had hoped to avoid.

Suddenly, the blizzards come out of nowhere and the whole village is snowed in. With no escape, Holly and Jude get much more than they bargained for -- it looks like the twelve days of Christmas are going to be very interesting indeed!
