What would you choose if you could select any Christmas gift you wanted — for somebody else? When Nick, the department store Santa at the shopping mall, discovers that the high school students employed at the shopping area’s stores are saving their money to buy gifts for their families, he suggests they each write down their special ’Christmas wish,’ put them in envelopes and hang them on the Christmas tree in the employee’s lounge. They decide that an important part of Christmas is ’not just the gifts, but the thought that goes into them,’ and soon the tree is covered with envelopes describing the special gift they would give if they could. The way each Christmas dream comes true makes this a memorable and thought-provoking holiday story.
