Description

This commercial for Hallmark recordable storybooks shows a man, opening a box in the middle of a military type tent, as his fellow soldiers are sleeping in their cots all around him. The man opens the box to find a Peanuts Christmas story book, with his son, Sam, reading the story. The man turns the pages, listening to the voices of his family, keeping them close even though they are obviously far apart during the holidays.
