It was Christmas Eve. And everyone in the Thomas’s family was dreaming sweet dreams. Nicky and Debbie were dreaming about what Santa would bring them. Mr. Thomas was dreaming of a new bat. Mrs. Thomas was dreaming of something else. Finally of course we have Mog. Mog was not dreaming sweet dreams. Mog was having a nightmare.

 - Follow that cat.

As the neighbours gathered, the fireman told everyone how Mog had saved the day.

 - He deserves a medal

 - I think, he’d rather have an egg.

But there was no egg for Mog. There was no Christmas at all. At least that’s what they thought. But everyone else thought that if the Thomases and Mog can’t have a Christmas they can share ours. So that’s exactly what they all did.

 - There you go Mog.
