Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year… that is, unless you’re a witch! At least that’s what novice witch, Pocky McGuire seems to think. Meanwhile, Pocky’s mortal friend, Brooklyn, is facing her own doubts about the holiday. It’ll take more than even Stamp’s magic to restore his friends’ Christmas spirit. It’s going to take a Christmas miracle!
