In an unusual holiday story, a band of stuffed bears embark on a secret mission that teaches young and old alike a joyous message about the true spirit of Christmas. The bears remove the Christmas gifts from under trees all over town, replacing them with notes that remind the people of those who are forgotten and alone on Christmas. What results is a wonderful celebration for all -- complete with gifts given and received, laughter, music, good company, and holiday cheer.
