It's Christmas Eve and Jonathan is looking forward to a quiet family celebration with his wife Michelle and daughter Cissy. This idea comes to a screeching halt when, unbeknownst to him, Michelle invites his mountain family to come down for the holiday. These good folks turn up bearing, not only gifts, but a rocking chair (for Pappy's sciatica) and a live turkey for Christmas dinner. When another high-society guest shows up unexpectedly, the mountain folk eagerly pitch in to help. After all, that's what family is for. Unfortunately, their backwoods ways raise more than a few eyebrows with the sophisticated city dweller. It all comes to a head when the turkey escapes and the police arrive to check out a report of an "axe-toting" prowler roaming the streets. In the midst of the ensuing confusion, the family patriarch steps in with his homespun wisdom to calm everyone down. He simply reminds them of the true meaning of Christmas, a message that has been buried underneath all the trimmings that society has added to the celebration. It’s the message of God's love and "peace on earth, good will toward men." About 30 minutes.
