First there was “The Christmas Box,” the heartwarming Richard Paul Evans story about a box at Christmas or some such.
Then came the tear-jerker “The Christmas Shoes,” a 94-minute made-for-TV movie — based on, of all things, a 4 1/2-minute song — starring Rob Lowe and Mrs. Brad Paisley.
And now, in the spirit of further exploiting mankind’s goodwill at the holidays by taking just about any old noun and slapping “Christmas” in front of it, comes The Greatest Holiday Story Since the Second Chapter of The Gospel According to St. Luke. That’s right, people. I’ve taken the liberty of penning the soon-to-be holiday classic, “The Christmas Jugs.”
Not THOSE jugs, silly.
