Rodney and Rudy hope to become a part of your family's annual Christmas traditions.
It was everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmas would be here soon.
All of the forest was ready except for Rodney and Rudy raccoon.
Their hearts were not into Christmas which, by itself, is very sad.
But what’s even sadder than that is the Christmas plan they had.
They were going to sneak into other homes late on Christmas Eve,
Steal all of the presents from under the trees and, just as quietly, leave.
Rodney and Rudy weren’t bad raccoons. All they knew was a life of crime.
But something magical was in the air. After all, it was Christmas time!
