David Street hates Christmas. His wife left him on Christmas day three years ago, he despises the commercialism, and his thirteen-year-old daughter spends the whole year talking about it. People say that Christmas is a happy time, but for David Street it's an annual voyage into the depths of hell.

This year his wife, whom he bitterly hates but clearly still loves, has given him a present to help him get over his fear of all things festive a 'true meaning of Christmas' gift set containing, among other things, a diary in which he can record his advent experiences. David is understandably cynical, but after persuasion from his daughter, he agrees to keep the diary.

Over the course of the month he has a series of experiences which lead him to question the meaning of Christmas, and to address his unhappiness. Many of these come from encounters with guests at his B&B the 'Streets Ahead Guest House'. His relationship with the diary grows slowly, and by the time the big day arrives David has begun to open up at last about his feelings. Through doing so, he manages to rebuild his broken relationship with his daughter, ask questions about the meaning of his existence, and even enjoy a happy Christmas.

A perfect 'give away' story for Christmas evangelism.
