Brother and Sister are in a Christmas Eve play called The Story of the First Christmas, for their Sunday School. Mama noticed that neither of the cubs found much joy in giving when they went to purchase Christmas gifts. When the cubs watched the scenes of the play unfold, they realized “[a]ll the gifts of all the Christmases went back to those first gifts given to the tiny baby long ago.” On Christmas Day, they were glad for the gifts they received but they also remembered they had more to give and finally found the joy of giving.
