J. D. Morse has been looking high and low for a specific gift for his grandson when he wanders into Nick's Emporium. Even though he find it hard to explain to the shop owner what he's looking for, he falls under the spell of Nick. Then when he goes out to his car for his wallet he runs into a policeman who takes him back into the store which is now dark. "This place ain't been in business for over twenty years!" , the cop tells Morse. But J. D. returns and finds Nick and his whole family again. And more than that, he finds his youth. This Christmas fantasy is full of humor and good old Christmas spirit.
