About this show

The Christmas Schooner has become a beloved holiday tradition over the last twelve years, offering a wonderful look at families and tradition. This holiday classic tells the story of Peter and Alma Stossel, whose pioneering spirit is full of the energy and dreams of America during the 19th Century. With the help of Peter's young son, Karl, and the companionship of his father from the Old Country, Gus, Peter decides to take Christmas Trees from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan across the icy waters to post-fire Chicago. The initial voyage of The Molly Doone is full of excitement and drama, and subsequent sailings of the vessel bring The Christmas Schooner its epic story of love lost and found.
