The Christmas Wreath


by James Hoffman

Exhausted after sending Santa off in his sleigh, the elves are too tired for their own celebration and fall asleep without putting up a tree or a wreath. The chief elf manages to craft a very unfinished wreath before succumbing to sleep himself. What follows next involves a hungry polar bear, the watery world below the ice, and the miraculous transformation of the ragged little wreath.
