The Christmas Cup

By Nancy Ruth Patterson

Family | December 5 – December 23

The story of Ann Megan McCallie, recipient of the Good Citizenship Award, spelling bee champion, and favorite target of bullies, displays the events that unfold after she foolishly buys an old, ugly milkshake cup at an auction. Nannie, her wise grandmother, helps Megan turn that unwanted cup into a vessel of good cheer as together they secretly find a way to make “memories in a milkshake cup.” Along the way, Megan learns to appreciate those who seem different and to be on the look-out for selfless acts of kindness. She learns that sometimes, it’s not the gift, but the giving itself, that makes life special.
