It's Never Too Late For SantaAll it takes is a mother's love, a town's good will and a little imagination
Nothing can make little Lena happier than a good old-fashioned Christmas with a Christmas tree, the Nativity play, lots of snow, and her parents - even though they've separated. But just a few days before the Big Day, Lena goes skating and breaks through the ice, nearly drowning in the freezing water.
She's rescued, but falls into a coma. When she awakens, it's nearly Easter, and the town is gearing up for its first Spring Flower Festival. Lena is too weak to be told the truth about the holiday season that didn't wait for her. Desperate not to worsen her daughter's condition, Lena's mother pretends that Christmas is still coming.
But how to get Lena home without her noticing all the Flower Festival decorations... With lots of willpower and persuasiveness, the child's resolute mother gets the town to band together and disguise the Spring Festival as Christmas - and even put on a Nativity play that Lena will never forget.
