Ed’s Christmas Miracle is a true story that happened in rural New York in 1963 when Ed Stevens was a boy of nine. His family was poor, and his mom, dad, and siblings had been sick with the flu for several days prior to Christmas. There was no food in the house and no snow on the ground.
On Christmas Eve, Ed sat on his front porch, staring at his Tonka trucks. When he heard chimes at the church up the street and knew neighbors were inside, praying and singing, he decided to pray, too. He asked God to help his family get better. And he asked for snow, to make Jesus’ birthday special.
God answered the young boy’s prayer in an unexpected way with a lake effect storm that brought over 30 inches of snow to the area by Christmas night. Ed’s dad was too ill to do the plowing that he usually did at the nearby Dairy League Plant with his Farmall tractor, so the farmers could bring their milk in to be trucked to NYC. He asked Ed to do the job.
Ed was inexperienced, small, and frightened. But his hard work and a community spirit combined with faith brought about a miracle. Ed’s Christmas miracle.

Paige can’t wait for Christmas so she can receive her favorite doll. Her mother gives her the doll, but she also lovingly hand stitches a teddy bear and offers this as another gift. Paige, unaware of the time and effort taken to make this gift, tosses the bear to the side. Mother is upset, but Paige doesn’t understand why.
She and her mom volunteer at the local food pantry. Paige meets Luisa, a girl who doesn’t have much money. Luisa shows Paige her favorite toy—a one-eared teddy bear, stained and dirty. Paige doesn’t understand why Luisa likes that bear until she hears her story. When Paige comes home and picks up the bear her Mom made, she realizes the best gifts of all are not the ones that come wrapped with pretty dresses, but the ones made with great love.
