A Porcupine in a Pine Tree: A Canadian 12 Days of Christmas

A hilarious cast of distinctively Canadian characters celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas. It’s totally unique, eh? Where else do Mounties munch on donuts, squirrels enjoy a fine game of curling and hockey players mark the season as leafs-a-leaping?
