Knick Knack

During the holiday season Knick Knack learns three things.

First you must hold on to your sense of humor. Keeping your jolly’s active helps deal with all the pressures and excitement of the days ahead. Knick Knack’s practical jokes certainly do that.

Second, remember that not all Good children get gifts. One explanation is that they have no one to write to Santa for them. Another reason and a sadder one is no one cares.

The third and most important lesson Knick Knack finds is that it is necessary for all of us to lend a hand as Knick Knack and all the birds and animals did to see all children have a chance for a Merry Christmas.
