A Christmas Without Snow originally premiered December 9, 1980. The title refers to the film's setting: the snowless San Francisco. The story is told from the point of view of newly divorced Michael Learned, who comes to grips with disillusionment with a little help from her friends in the church choir. As the singers prepare for a performance of Handel's "Messiah" under the autocratic leadership of choirmaster John Houseman, we learn a little something about the personal lives of several choir members, including Ramon Bieri, Ruth Nelson and Valerie Curtin--and the lonely Houseman himself. Christmas without Snow was presented by CBS in conjunction with the network's Family Reading Program.

The writer of this movie obviously hates Christmas. It is depressing from start to finish. Every 'feel good' thing you want and normally see in Holiday movies is missing...like the snow in the title. A mom who can't support her 1 child, an insulting choir director who dismisses members of a volunteer choir, a drug using, lying pastor's son. on and on, pass the asprin.

This is a great film and very inspiring. Helps volunteers (especially choirs) to understand what it means to do something for the love of it.

Although the movie has a good plot and storyline and excellent performances it does not evoke any Christmas spirit. It would have worked just as well at Easter.
