Based on the popular children’s book The Polar Express, this is a story of a young
boy and his sister who learn from their friends that there is no Santa Claus. On
Christmas Eve, however, the boy hears a distant whistle and sees a locomotive pull
into his front yard. He boards it and is on a journey northward; the destination is
the North Pole.
After he and the other children disembark, they learn that it is nearly time for Santa
to begin his annual Christmas Eve journey. However, he will select one of them to
receive the first gift of Christmas, which can be anything that they wish. The young
boy is selected, and, after much thought, he chooses a bell from the harness of
When he begins his trip to his home, the boy discovers that he had a hole in his
pocket and he lost the bell. The next morning, though, he receives an extra present:
the bell with a note from Santa. His parents are disappointed because they do not
hear the sweet jingle from it, and they think that it is broken. However, the boy and
his sister DO hear the clear, sweet sound because of their faith.
Many years later, the sister could no longer hear the jingle, but the boy always
could. He always believed in the spirit of Christmas.
