In a new twist on The 12 Days of Christmas, a cardinal named Carl hangs an invite on the old fir tree for a 12-day Winter Solstice party. Two polar bears come. Then three caribou. Then four jolly snowmen. Each day more creatures arrive to celebrate the return of the sun's light. On the 12th day (Jan 1st) the sun thanks the over 60 woodland creatures by the tree with a magical surprise.
