The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
Based on Barbara Robinson's best-selling children's book, this '80s TV movie makes us all believe in holiday miracles…even if it's just for an hour. This story centers on the Herdman children, a troupe of misguided youngsters who spit, swear, light things on fire and threaten other children with bodily harm. When they take over the local church's production of the Christmas story, everyone expects the manger to go up in flames. But, when the curtain goes up, viewers are reminded of the season's true meaning. Warm fuzzies all around.
