On Christmas Eve night, a boy awakens to noises outside his house. Looking out the window, he sees St. Nicholas in an air-borne sleigh pulled by eight reindeer. After landing his sleigh on the roof, the Saint enters the house through the chimney, carrying a sack of toys with him. The boy watches St. Nicholas filling the children's Christmas stockings hanging by the fire, and laughs to himself. They share a conspiratorial moment before the saint bounds up the chimney again.
As he flies away, Saint Nicholas wishes everyone a "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night."
