Synopsis

When Christmas Spirit fills the air, the gift of song is ours to share…
Christmas Spirit enables Pepper McGee to sing like an angel, which means her second grade class is sure to win the coveted “Santa Sing-Off.” Then Pepper discovers that her early Christmas present isn’t a red bicycle but is, instead, a baby sister who takes everyone’s attention – and both her Christmas Spirit and voice vanish. Pepper’s only hope of getting them back lies with that jolly old elf himself, Santa Claus, who takes her on a magical adventure that changes how she sees Christmas forever.

Approximate Running Time: 50 minutes
