Two young elves, WINTER and SNOWFLAKE (It's a boy elf name!!!) have a hard time following the rules and are prone to sneaking off for some good elf playtime. But after wrecking the North Pole's official Christmas tree, the two elf brothers along with a rebellious reindeer named SPARKLE find themselves on the dreaded Naughty List. They are forced to do mundane horrible tasks like washing windows, cleaning bathrooms and more but seem to always make a bigger mess than they had to begin with. After the group is regulated to kitchen duty, they somehow manage to give the whole North Pole food poisoning including Santa! Now with only hours to go before Christmas, they are the only ones left to help save Christmas.
Winter, Snowflake (two young elves) and Sparkle (a young reindeer) have found themselves in a terrible place. Wanting to do things their way instead of by the rules, they are now on Santa's naughty list. They are now faced with many different chores to perform to see if they can rectify their behavior and return to the nice list.
There is only one problem, "Winter" wants them to do things the quick way not the right way and in the process manages to get most of the North Pole sick including Santa. Can they change things around, work together, and follow the rules to save Christmas for the world? It is up to them.
No one wants to be on the naughty list at Christmas and here is a charming movie about doing the right things, following the rules and thinking of others before yourself. This animated tale is cute and will be a good conversation topic for the entire family. It has many lessons to teach the audience about being good.
