- A hilarious and moving account of one family’s frantic countdown to Christmas Eve. Follow in the author’s footsteps as he wrestles with giant Christmas trees, scrambles to get to his children’s concerts, is swallowed up by the mobs in the mall, sings his choirs first tentative attempt at Handel’s Messiah and enters into a desperate nationwide search for goats for his church’s Christmas pageant. Christmas is a time of joy and memories, memories that are both sweet and tinged with sadness. In this book we share both the happiness and the grief that can accompany this season. Our Twelve Days of Christmas is a book that will resonate with every family, as it shares a story that is both unique and universal, a story of family and the genuine meaning of this holiday.
