This year is going to be the best Christmas EVER! Santa decided to send his favorite little Christmas SPOT down from the North Pole to help children get ready for Christmas. This SPOT is great at decorating Christmas trees, hanging lights and baking yummy cookies but soon discovers that Santa may not get a present this year! Join this little SPOT on a journey to give the gift of kindness, patience and gratitude this year as a "gift" to Santa.
