The elves, the reindeer and the children  around the world are upset when Santa Claus unhitches his sleigh and vows he is taking a holiday. But one boy comes to Santa’s rescue. “Santa deserves a holiday,”  he says. “It’s a day to give as well as to get.” And so the children send presents to  Santa—and their kindness makes him so  happy that he jumps into his sled and away  he goes on his Christmas journey!
