90's Christmas Special with a great moral.
18 December 2012 | by (Ma) – See all my reviews

In the tradition of Scrooge and the Grinch comes Jeremy Creek A Greedy self centered young boy who has so many toys but just wants more.In the middle of the year he makes a really long letter to Santa so long that Santa and the elves can't believe that it came from one person they think it came from a poor town that Santa has forgot. This is an inspirational Story i heard of stories in the news similar to this people going out of there way to give to less fortunate even young kids doing good deeds around the holiday.Sadly i also hear stories of people stealing from the needy around this time.The town of Jeremy Creek is a poor dingy broken town that is in need of happiness at first Jeremy is angry that his toys went somewhere else but seeing what he done and the children's appreciation he learn what Christmas means and like most every bad character in a Christmas special he turns good at the end. Jeremy learn it's better to give then receive and give away most of his toys This can still be viewed on Youtube but good luck finding it on TV anymore.
