“The Bed Jacket”

If you have heard of a "bed jacket," I am willing to bet there is a good chance it is because you are familiar with an episode of "The Andy Griffith Show" that first aired on Dec. 17, 1962.

"The Bed Jacket" was a wonderfully written, well-acted illustration that, though the Taylor household was not a nuclear family in the traditional sense, the home was built on a foundation of love.

Andy gives up his prized fishing rod so he can get Aunt Bea a birthday present that will make her happy. And though the episode is not set at Christmas, it says a lot about the joy of giving.
