Description

See below for English description.

Le porc-épic et ses amis typiquement canadiens sont de retour! Cette fois, ils préparent les décorations de Noël. Les huards enfilent leurs patins, les ours polaires chaussent leurs pantoufles douillettes et les chiens de traîneau courent dans tous les sens. Mais où sont les castors?

Ce conte hilarant qui se chante sur la mélodie de Falalalala... plaira à toute la famille pendant le temps des Fêtes!

 

Join Porcupine and his familiar Canadian friends as they decorate for Christmas! That means loons donning skates, polar bears cozy in slippers and sled dogs chasing around the room! All the while, the beavers are busy building a secret surprise . . . what could it be?

This hilarious, tongue-in-cheek re-setting of the popular Christmas carol will have the whole family singing this holiday season!

Original title: Deck the Halls: A Canadian Christmas Carol
