This winter is extraordinary, so Moomintroll decides to stay awake to explore the season instead of having his winter slumber as usual. It is totally different than he had imagined.

And an eccentric guest is soon to appear: This guest requires many measures, and is called Christmas, the astounded Moomintroll is told.
