When Steven Connors dies suddenly on Christmas morning, six-year-old David has not only lost his father, but Christmas, too. Little does he know that his father isn't far, and will be stopping by to visit from time to time. Or that with each visit, he will look--and sound--more and more like a certain jolly old gentleman in whom David has stopped believing.
