It's Christmas Eve! Papa Bear has gone up to the attic to find the Christmas stockings... meanwhile, Mama Bear, Leslie and and Benjamin open the last card; it's from Buzzy, the Black Bear from Bear Harbor, Maine. He is a park ranger in the National Park there, and keeps telling the Bears they must come vacation there. Along with his card, he sent a pine wreath which Benjamin is going to hang on the door.
Everyone is wearing their nightclothes because it's late... and Mama Bear still has some wrapping to do! The cat is getting tired, and is wondering when the presents are going to be opened. At least the big box makes a comfortable place to nap... Who is that big box for, anyway?
