J.D. Morse has been looking high and low for a special Christmas gift for his grandson. Finally, as a last resort he takes the advice of a flier on his car windshield and wanders into Nick’s Emporium, an old-fashioned store chock-full of all sorts of gifts and knickknacks. He has a hard time explaining to Nick what he is looking for, but finds himself falling under the old storekeeper’s spell. Just when Morse is about to buy something, he runs outside to chase some kids away from his car. When he returns, he finds the store suddenly dark and quiet. A policeman then shows up to run him off because, “This place ain’t been open in 40 years!” Morse finds a way back, not only to the store, but to a time 40 years ago when he was a younger man. This Yuletide fantasy is full of humor and the holiday spirit and makes us all wish we could find a “Nick’s Emporium” where life stands still and we can all truly enjoy A LITTLE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT.
