A traditional, heart-warming family Christmas celebration in the tradition of Cynthia Rylant's The Relatives Came.

Every Christmas, Granny's house is brim full of family and festive cheer--carols and presents and plenty of food, bows and gift wrap for Fat Cat to play with, and lots of company for Granny and her dog, Edgar.

This Christmas, snow starts to fall and it doesn't stop. Instead of going home, the whole family hunkers down for a cozy night in Granny's warm house.

Whhhhh went the wind,
but everyone was snug.
Shhhhhh went the snow,
but everyone was together.

Even during a blizzard, there's no place better than Granny's house for Christmas.
