'Tis the night before Christmas, and something is coming. A sleigh drawn by eight reindeer? Not this time. It's a UFO, bringing five aliens to the quiet little town of Hamlet, Vermont. The five visitors from the planet Fixipuddle assume the appearance of Earthlings -- well, elves -- and set out to rid Earth of its evil dictator, a fat man in a red suit.
