A little boy named Claus worries that he is different from other kids: he has a loud jolly laugh, he likes to wear red all the time, and his favorite hangout is the workshop with his grandmother. His grandmother tells him his differences make him special. When a snowstorm threatens to ruin Christmas, Claus learns just how special he really is.
