Synopsis

Set in December 1910, Mrs. Santa Claus has devised a new round-the-world route which she is convinced will save Santa lots of time on Christmas Eve. She leaves the North Pole to test the route, but over New York City, her reindeer-driven sleigh is downed by a wind current, and Cupid's leg is twisted. Stranded in New York, the anonymous Mrs. Claus soon becomes involved in the events of the day. All the while, she urgently knows that she must find a way home to the North Pole, or else Christmas will not happen this year.
