Meet two families who struggle to remember Christmas without allowing "Time" and "Money" to overtake their lives. Susan and Bob, young marrieds, don't even have time to talk once a week, let alone plan for Christmas. Bob is always flying out of town on business, and Susan is involved in her job and too many other organizations. Their next door neighbor, Claude, helps Susan see the necessity to simplify their lives. Meanwhile, Claude's young granddaughter, Jessica, has written a six-page Christmas wish list. Her parents are frantic, knowing they cannot begin to buy everything on the list, and wonder if re-reading the Christmas story and a visit to her grandfather will remind their daughter of the true meaning of the season. But Jessica's list has a lesson to teach them all, and together they joyously await the arrival of the Christ child. About 45 minutes.
