Storyline

Christmas is supposed to be a season of love, warm feelings, and happy hearts. But with the childrens constant bickering, pretty packages and a sweet-smelling tree dont come close to filling the McDonald home with the true spirit of the first Christmas. Then Mom remembers an old tradition of building a soft bed for Baby Jesus one straw at a time. Each time someone secretly does something nice for another family member, he or she gets to add a single straw to the manger. Soon the childrens quarreling and negative feelings subside and the homemade crib is overflowing. But for one family member, a required act of kindness becomes more than he can take. The Last Straw is a true story. Written by Anonymous

This has to be one of the greatest seasonal movies. It shows how love and the true meaning of christmas can bring a family together. The actor who plays Kelly McDonald is adorable and fun to watch!
