  Welcome to another edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre. In this edition, we bring you a little Christmas treat from Stephen Leacock. It is our way of putting an extra peppermint stick in your stocking or hanging another ornament on your tree. 

Mr. Leacock was one of the most famous comic writers of the early 1900s throughout the English-speaking world, and his humor heavily influenced vaudeville comedians, including Jack Benny, who was introduced to Leacock's work by Groucho Markx.

Columbia families and volunteers joined the global effort to spread holiday cheer to millions of needy children.

       Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an international Christian relief organization. Participants of the project fill shoeboxes with gifts and items for children in need.

"We send shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items to children living overseas who may have never had a gift before in their life," says Assistant Director of Operation Christmas Child Rachael Mills.
