    In this hilarious Christmas classic by Barbara Robinson, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdmans – six rowdy siblings who showed up for the free snacks. As their shenanigans create chaos on stage, the true meaning of Christmas emerges in a very unexpected way.
