The Magic Christmas Key

Summary:

Everyone is gathering at Nana and Papa's house for Christmas. Andy loved Christmas with Papa, especially Papa's beautiful sleigh. Papa showed Andy a key, and said simply "All things are possible when you believe." The next day, Papa explained the significance of the Magic Key and Andy was now its keeper. Being the Keeper of Santa's Magic Key turned out to be much harder than Andy thought. With Andy in charge, Christmas was turning into a disaster! What would Santa think?
