A Christmas Odyssey


Description

Forget those serene manger images you see on Christmas cards. A Christmas Odyssey revisits the Christmas story as Connie and Eugene "crash" Bethlehem for Jesus' birth. "Silent Night?" Hardly! Then zoom back to the present for a Kids' Radio reenactment that's too close for comfort: "Mary" goes into premature labor! There's enough drama to go around for several Christmases. Or multiple replays. Whichever comes first.
