The six children of a new Dutch-Canadian family celebrate Christmas eve in the traditional way of Netherlanders. Little Dutch shoes are placed by the fire filled with straw and a carrot, a special treat for Santa's horse in his night-long, roof-top journey bringing toys to all good little girls and boys.
