Publisher's Summary

"If you find you have some time, how wonderful if we could have a little chat and share a cup of Christmas tea."

A man receives an invitation from his elderly, ailing aunt and doesn't want to go. It's the midst of the Christmas rush, and who needs the aggravation? The depression? The strain? Driven by guilt, he visits her anyway - and rediscovers the true meaning of Christmas.

Tom Hegg wrote "A Cup of Christmas Tea" in 1981, when his pastor asked him to write something for his church's 125th anniversary. Drawing on childhood memories, he composed a straightforward, sentimental poem that brought tears to his audience's eyes. First published in 1982, it's been a seasonal best-seller ever since.

"A Memory of Christmas Tea", published in 1999, is the heartwarming sequel. Revisiting the themes of "A Cup of Christmas Tea", it gently reminds us of the important things in life - such as taking time for loved ones.

    "Excellent!"

    It was like going back in time. I was blessef to have 4 grat aunts that nurtured my siblings, cousins, and myself. We always took time out during the holidays to visit and take gifts
    They were always interested in our lives and gave good advice as needed. We always ended our visits with a prayer. and a promise to visit when I was at home again. They are all gone now, but I am blessed to have the memories. these stories always mske me think of those times with my great aunts and uncles
