The Hartley’s have decided to minimize Christmas this year — too much trouble, and even though they just happen to live in Washington’s Crossing, Pennsylvania, they have seemingly lost their historical and faith roots. Grandma Goldie, however, is determined to bring them back.

Through the use of a magical old barrel organ this comically dysfunctional family is transported back to Christmas Eve, 1776, where they meet up with General George Washington as he is considering crossing the Delaware.

They ‘catch the spirit’ of Revolutionary times, and when they return to the present they decide to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas. Carolers, mummers, dancing and ensemble singing fill out this delightful tribute to the Christmas spirit by Gillette Elvgren.
