It’s becoming a beloved Christmastime tradition: Local author and actor Doug Brendel will present two original holiday stories at a free event on Friday, December 18th, at 7 p.m., at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 59 Main St. in Essex, MA.
“Dirty” is the amusing, heartwarming story of the first Christmas told from the perspective of an unsophisticated shepherd.
“The Day After Christmas” is a story in rhyme about an old man who works in “Refunds & Complaints.”
This year’s event will also feature a third story, “Christmas, Inc.”, a whimsical look at Santa’s own struggles with the season’s commercialism.
Voluntary donations will be received for Family Promise, an interfaith group dedicated to helping homeless families on the North Shore.
