In the winter of 1945, after the war has ended, Marion and her daughter-in-law, Della, return home to Memphis, mourning the loss of their husbands. They have no jobs, no money, and no hope. Where can they possibly call “home” this Christmas?
Trusting God in their most desperate moment, Marion and Della decide to stick together to rebuild their lives. As the story unfolds, they grasp glimpses of hope around each corner and in the faces of the people they meet. Is it possible God could be restoring their home for Christmas?
Just when it seems to have slipped away, hope comes from a very unexpected place. In Home for Christmas, Memphis 1945, Marion and Della discover redemption is never that far away.
The Singing Christmas Tree returns for its 40th year, continuing one of Memphis’ most beloved Christmas traditions. This year’s presentation finds hope in the midst of heartache as it weaves the story of a 1940s war-torn family with the inspiring true story of redemption found in the book of Ruth and the timeless truth of Jesus’ birth.
Home for Christmas, Memphis 1945 will feature original story and music; the signature 44-foot Christmas tree; over 100,000 lights; a cast, choir, and orchestra of over 500; and a Broadway-worthy performance. Don’t miss this year’s uplifting story of hope as it collides with the true story of redemption found in the miracle of our Savior’s birth.
