For one high-school senior in McRoberts, Ky., growing up with a conservative Christian family meant no presents for Christmas — and reservations about what she might be missing. Now, after having a chance to celebrate Christmas at her grandmother's house, she reflects on the true meaning of the holiday. Brittany Lamb's radio essay was produced by the Appalachian Media Institute and Youth Radio.
