Nothing is going right his Christmas, Peter is not looking forward to Christmas at Grandma's—he can't find the very special present that Grandpa promised him just before he passed away, and he's taking it out on everyone and everything around him. Peter's cousin, Hannah, has decided never to talk to anyone ever again and invents her own sign language to communicate. Hannah's mom, Ginny is very, very pregnant. Uncle Mike is being a grump in the kitchen. Grandma's two older sons return home to a sibling rivalry that they never outgrew. Aunt Bop shows up and so do the police. And in the middle of all of this, Grandma is coping with her first Christmas without Grandpa, trying to keep everyone calm and happy and while also trying to do absolutely everything for everybody who walks in the house—as only a grandmother can do. As the mayhem grows, the Christmas reunion turns to chaos and the family short circuits—along with every light and electrical system in the house. When all seems ready to explode, the clan receives a well-deserved visit from a very special, very quirky angel, who helps this very special and just as quirky family rediscover the true meaning of Christmas. Any family who has ever experienced a chaotic holiday gathering will delight in The Christmas Angel.
