The Greenhouse, where all the beautiful Christmas plants are grown, has fallen through the ice. The polar ice cap is melting!

With his wife, Sarah Claus at this side, Santa is joined by four elves, Tinsel, Toby, Snowball, and Sherman, as they search the world for a new place to move the Christmas Village to.
