Christmas Day in the Morning: Awakening the Joy of Christmas (Book)

This beautiful gift book contains the story presented by Richard Thomas, Emmy Award–winning actor of stage, television, and motion pictures, at the 2019 live Christmas concert of The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square. In this adaptation of the original Pearl S. Buck story, published in Collier’s magazine in 1955, Rob looks back on his boyhood and remembers giving an unusual gift of self—a gift that filled him with Christmas joy. Now, fifty years later, Rob realizes he can still give a gift from his heart—a letter of gratitude and love to his wife. As he does, Christmas joy is awakened in him once again. The final pages of this book provide a place for you to write your own letter of gratitude and love—a letter that will naturally be included when you give this book to a family member, neighbor, or friend.
