Regan W.H. Macaulay and Alex Zgud team up again to bring you a sweet Christmas story titled, Merry Myrrh the Christmas Bat.

Myrrh is born to the barn bats, Mr. and Mrs. Raft. Named after a gift from the Magi, the Rafts have enjoyed visiting the farmhouse each Christmas to peer in at the Nativity scene in the window.
