A COUNTRY REUNION – COMEDY ABOUT CHRISTMAS
In this comedy about Christmas and family, Ma and Pa Hawkins, their children; Millie Ann, Billie Jean, Homer and Zeke, the nosy neighbour Miss Abby, Isaac (Billie’s husband), Amos (a cousin or somethin’ like that) and his fiancée Clyde (she ain’t
no man, honey) cousin Virgil, unc’ Jeb, cousin Zelda, aunt Allie, all gather for a true honky tonk, deep fried, southern belles and cowboys, Crooked Creek country Christmas.
It’s a family reunion to rival most when the Highlanders (Martin and Martha) enter the Hawkins’ household, with a detective no less, hell-bent on implicating the Hawkins’ in the crime of stolen Christmas trees, not to mention their prize hog.
But it ain’t just the trees that the Highlanders want… and it ain’t just the trees that the Hawkins might be hidin’. This
holiday, the Spirit of Christmas (and a leetle Moonshine) is workin’ overtime ya’ll!
There ain’t nothin’ like a (crooked) family Christmas!
