A collection of four Readers' Theatre plays.  All are set at Christmas time. All the plays are light-hearted and amusing as they each present a nugget of the Christian message to all ages.  They are easily staged in a church chancel or on a bare stage with only one or two rehearsals.  The plays in this collection are:

Sara Elizabeth and the Everything-Just-Right-Christmas -  Sara, a precocious 9 or 10 year old, learns that Jesus doesn't expect people to be perfect when her elaborate plans for Christmas are spoiled because her family doesn't do everything "just right."

Timmy and the Christmas Strangers - During a long flight delay on Christmas Eve, Timmy and the other passengers learn that strangers can be friends you just haven't met yet.

Christmas and the Gargoyle and the Big, Big Present - Timmy learns not to count his chickens before they are hatched when his BIG present from the Gargoyle turns out to be not at all what he expected.  A sequel to Christmas and the Gargoyle Who Wouldn't Say Thank You, An "ASYOUWILLREMEMBER" prologue delightfully presents the characters from the previous play for those unfamiliar with it.

Timmy and the Alien -  An encounter with an alien from another planet gives Timmy a fresh appreciation of what Christmas is really about.
