The City that Forgot About Christmas

"Sometimes I wish there wasn't a Christmas." Benji thinks the hustle and bustle of Christmas only makes people grouchy. But Grandfather tells him about a sad city that never celebrated Christmas — until one special year.

A gloomy city and its children discover "You can't stop Christmas" from Matthew, the new carpenter in town. Matthew shares with the children what makes him different and what makes Christmas so special — it's Jesus! Soon the whole city is planning a big Christmas celebration, the first in many years. But the dastardly Mayor and his henchmen plan to stop the celebration. Will they succeed?

Follow along as the distinctive voices of Sebastian Cabot, Louis Nye and Charles Nelson Reilly help bring to life the fanciful tale of a town where Christmas was almost forgotten.
