‘Twas The Fight Before Christmas: We Speak to Director Becky Read

Dept. of Chats and Confabs


Christmas is a time of joy, and love, and family. But what happens when the Christmas spirit brought by one man and his family, becomes too much for the entire neighbourhood. This is the story of Jeremy Morris and his mission to bring Christmas cheer to everyone, whether they like it or not.

We spoke with ‘Twas The Fight Before Christmas director Becky Read about her documentary, her compelling subject, and what she hopes the audience will take away from it.

‘Twas the Fight Before Christmas follows the story of a North Idaho neighborhood turned upside down by one man’s obsession with bringing Christmas cheer to all, through the biggest community Christmas event America has ever seen. Christmas-loving lawyer Jeremy Morris’ plan hits a snag when the home owners’ association informs him that the event violates the rules of the neighborhood. A contentious fight over the festivities erupts and things snowball out of control. As the situation escalates, the film asks the question, who wins when different rights and interests collide?

Director Becky Read pieces together the polarized perspectives in this quirky Christmas tale about freedoms, with a message about differences and tolerance at its heart.

‘Twas The Fight Before Christmas is now streaming on Apple TV Plus.
