In this retelling of the classic Christmas carol The Twelve Days of Christmas, a young bear courts his true love. The 12 gifts that accompany him are wonderful indeed - they are the creatures of the northern woodlands with a magical twist. The calling birds are loons; the lords-a-leaping, moose. And after all the gifts are given, the wedding celebration begins!
