SCENE 1 It's Christmas Eve and Elmo and Baby Bear are hanging out at Hooper's Store while their parents' band is performing a holiday concert. Ernie greets them on his way out of the store, followed by Mr. Johnson, whom Grover tries to help by carrying his groceries (the opposite way of his home). Inside the store, Oscar complains that his Crankymas ornaments aren't busted and derides anyone from wishing him a happy holiday on the way out. The store's shelves are virtually empty because of the holiday rush. Elmo is especially eager for tonight's visit from Santa Claus.

SCENE 1 cont'd Alan gets a call on the store phone from Louie, saying both families are caught in traffic from the incoming snowstorm; Elmo and Baby Bear will have to stay at Hooper's until they can get home. Elmo is disappointed, as he had big plans to celebrate tonight, while Baby Bear finds the store not very festive-looking. Nina comes in from locking up elsewhere. She and Alan remind the two that the holidays are about being with loved ones and provide them with some crafty supplies so they can all make Hooper's look great for the holiday season.
