The audience is led to believe that they are actually watching what they came to watch. But soon the action turns not to the Christmas pageant play they just witnessed but to the players and what Christmas Eve looks like in their homes when the show is over and exactly where the Christmas spirit can be found when the manger is put into storage for another year.

Characters: 10
Length: 25-30

Home for the Holidays Script
