t is nearly Christmas and the three cowboys in this story are stuck out on the range caring for cattle. '
Santy Claus will never find us out here,
' snivels one of the wranglers.
s they think back to their childhoods and remember past holiday seasons, the men conjure up images of decorated trees, making cookies, and Yuletide hayrides. Trying to relive the past they decorate a cactus, make charred sugar-molasses-bean cookies (ugh!), and try fashioning reindeer antlers for some of the cows. None of these attempts at recapturing that ole' Christmas spirit work, though!
hen something very special happens that saves the holiday and makes it a wonderful one for all the cowpokes. Naturally, I'm going to let you discover what that
is but it will give your little buckaroos a very warm feeling inside! Ho, ho ho!
