Everyone agreed that the six Herdman kids were the worst kids in the world. They lied, they stole, they hit little kids, they talked dirty, and everyone smoked cigars (even the girls.) To the other children Sunday School was a safe haven, because the Herdman's never went there. Then one Sunday, when the Herdman's show up looking for chocolate cake, they hear about the Christmas pageant and decide they want to participate.

Landing all the main parts, what will happen when kids who have never even heard the story of Christmas interpret it for their new church?
