Told in two parts, Anton Chekhov’s "At Christmas Time" begins with an illiterate woman hiring a local man to write a letter wishing her daughter—from who she has heard nothing since her wedding and departure four years earlier—a merry Christmas. In the second part, the letter arrives for the daughter, whose life is not what she imagined it would be. While not a traditional story of Christmas cheer, Chekhov’s "At Christmas Time" has captivated audiences since its publication in 1900 and is recognized today as a Christmas classic.
