The World Chamber of Commerce decrees that Christmas will be celebrated 365 days a year, "for philanthropic reasons." Finding that some souls still aren't happy, the Chamber sets up a complaint booth, complete with the amazing Sub-Atomic Quasi-Robotic Christmas-Wish Good Fairies, who achieve some unexpected, not-quite-satisfactory results. An imaginative plea for putting Christ back into Christmas, backed by some none-too-gentle swipes at our somewhat perverted ideas of happiness. Ideal play for school production.
