"You Can't Stop Christmas"
Let's Pretend "The House of the World".
Originally aired December 26, 1942
A little boy and the Angel "Good Will" visit homes around the world that are surrounded by the walls of Selfishness, Greed, Poverty and Intolerance. We see the people living their narrow lives, consumed by fear, oblivious to the people around them who are needing love and help and support and kindness. One by one their lives are transformed, so that Christmas can once again live in their hearts and in their homes.
Cavalcade of America
"Barbed Wire Christmas" Originally aired, Originally aired December 16, 1952
The true story of American soldiers in a German P.O.W. camp during WWII. Morale is low, hope is all but extinct, and Christmastime is approaching. The men decide that no matter how bad their situation is, they want to have a Yuletide mass. Soon the entire camp gets excited, hope returns as they plan and create and look forward to the big day. But then word comes from the Gestapo office that too many men assembled in one place is considered dangerous and must be prevented. The soldiers are ordered to cease the Holiday planning and any man seen entering the mass service will be shot.
Together, along with live Christmas carols, these two rare classics from the Golden Age of Radio will remind us all, "You Can't Stop Christmas."
