Storyline

A young shepherd, Lucas, is blinded by lightening, and some kindly nuns at a nearby abbey take him in. Sister Catherine describes snow to Lucas, who has never seen it. Lucas gets chosen to play an angel in the abbey's Christmas pageant, and the Christmas snow that falls during the pageant works a small miracle. Written by Kathy Li

Quotes

Lucas: Louisa, if you could have anything you wanted, what would you ask for, for a Christmas present?
Louisa: Oh that's easy. I once saw a rich lady in my uncle's village with a beautiful white fur muff. It was so big she could put a hot potato in it to keep her hands warm. I'd like a muff like that.
