Storyline

Christmas Eve, Polly, a little girl, is in great excitement. She wishes to get so many toys from Santa Clans! She hangs her stockings on the mantelpiece, says her prayers, bids her mother good-night, and goes to bed. As soon as she is sleeping, two kidnappers come into her bedroom, take her and bring her into a miserable cellar. The man quarrels with the woman and reproaches her for having taken the little girl. Polly cries very much from fright. The kidnappers, fearing the police, take her away from the cellar. While she is out with them, she runs away and gets lost in a forest. The snow falls. She remembers the tale of Tom Thumb and she climbs a big tree and sees in the distance a church illuminated for the midnight mass. She goes there directly. The beadle will not let her in. but a kind woman sends her to the gallery. She notices a beautiful colored window and admires it. Suddenly the window turns like a wheel and disappears and in its place Santa Clans is there loaded with toys. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
