Starring David Payne

In the early years of his young adult life C.S. Lewis believed the story of Christ’s birth
was nothing more than feel-good myth. That all changed after a particular encounter
with his great friend and fellow author, J.R.R. Tolkien. Although both men loved
mythology in general, Tolkien was convinced that the Jesus myth was the one true
myth. That was the start of Lewis’ journey from Atheism to Christianity. From that point
on Christmas, for Lewis, took on an entirely different meaning.

Here we find him at his home near Oxford on Christmas Eve hosting a group of
Americans who are Christmassing in England. They are about to experience
an unforgettable assortment of Yuletide recollections which stimulates a whole range of
emotions – curiosity, laughter, gladness and even some tears. Above all, they will
discover how that encounter with Tolkien forever changed his Christmas celebrations.
