82 min

On December 12th

13 p.m.,

snow falls on Chicago.

A single snowflake is birthed

from a cumulonimbus cloud

10,000 feet above Lincoln Park.

It doesn't reach the ground

for 45 minutes.

AT 1:
58, the snowflake lands

on the cheek of Edith Struit.

For their 50th anniversary,

her husband, Irv, brings to life

Edith's most prized treasure.

The music box

her mother gave them

on the night of their wedding.

Five miles away,

Martin Hamilton awaits a visit

from his sister, Clara,

with whom he's been estranged

for the past ten years.

She gives him

a black Labrador Retriever.

The same dog Martin lost

eight months prior.

Returned to his master

as if not a single day

had passed.

Along the Gold Coast,

Louis and Christina Selter

lead their 12-year-old son,


on what he believes

is a moonlight stroll.

Too sick to go to Space Camp,

Matthew has spent the past week

holed up in his room

reading Air And Space Magazine.

He's filled with joy

when he discovers

a gleaming new telescope

aimed directly at the star

that's been named after him.

A small piece of the universe

that belongs to him,

but is shared with everyone

in the universe.

And in a

smart-and-tastefully-done house

in the desirable West Chicago,

Tom Jacobs

checks his phone and smiles,

who is the architect

of these dreams come true.

If he does his job well,

they'll never know.

And for Tom,

that's all it is, a job,

one he happens to be

very good at.

I should know because I'm him.

I'm always able to find

the perfect gift

no matter the occasion,

but Christmas is my specialty.

That's how I earned

my nickname, Mr. Christmas.

Oh, I forgot how much

I love Chicago.

You know, there's so much

character here,

so much history.

You know, there's a lot

of history at home, too, so...

Okay, what LA considers historic

is an 80-year-old hotdog stand.

Hey, uh, I'm really glad

you're here.

I know it was a, a big ask,

you missing holidays

with your family.

Okay, I told you

a million times.

- Don't worry about it.

- All right.

- Seriously, I want to be here.

- All right, all right.

Besides, I get to experience

snow during Christmas again.

- That's true. That's true.

- Oh, pizza.

We should do

a walking pizza tour.

Come on, tonight,

after the movie?

Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. I just,

I gotta, I gotta swing by home.

- Before the movie, okay?

- Okay.

'Cause I have that conference

call in... 25 minutes.

- I gotta go.

- Oh, okay.

- I gotta go. Bye.

- All right, bye.

Okay, I'll pick you up

at 2:

I'll get the tickets!

It's Christmas time

another season

And I will start

the caroling

With all the family

When sleigh bells ring

And when I hear you sing

without the

Christmas time

Our favorite holiday

Soy cappuccino

for Mr. Christmas.

Have you moved on

to New Year's yet?

Yeah, Christmas

is all wrapped up.

Lovely to see you, Victoria.

I knew I'd find you here.

Why a man of your acumen

would choose to work

in such a quaint place,

I will never understand.

Yes, I'm sure that's true.

Have a seat.

To what do I owe the pleasure?

Oh, I just wanted

to let you know

that the gift you got for mother

was a raving success.

I haven't seen

her happy like that in ages.

And getting her

out of the country

for an entire season?

I didn't realize

I would be getting a gift

out of this deal, as well.

I can't thank you enough.

I'm glad you're happy,

but a simple phone call

would have been sufficient.

And how would I have seen

that handsome face?

Besides, social graces compel me

to invite you over for dinner
