Storyline

Upset with his children's materialistic approach to the holiday season, Jim insists the family drive to the mountains to chop down the family Christmas tree. Jim's wish for a simple family Christmas becomes an unfortunate reality when their car gets stuck in a snow drift far from nearest phone. The Anderson family takes refuge in a mountain lodge closed for the season and are befriended by a man, apparently the caretaker, who teaches the Anderson children the delights of a simple holiday. Written by David Bassler

Quotes

Nick: What's your name, son?
James 'Bud' Anderson Jr.: Bud, sir.
Nick: Bud, sir. Good straight-forward name, son.
James 'Bud' Anderson Jr.: What's yours?
Nick: Mine? Mine's Nick - or it's Old Nick or it's That Old Man. The name's a label, but the label isn't the important thing - it's what's inside the package that counts.
