Description

Old Father Christmas is disguised as a beggar is made fun of and snowballed by a mob of moneliacci; a good boy, on the other hand, helps him and leads him into his house where he restores him. Old Father Christmas then reveals his power and decides to punish the bad children and reward the good ones. We then see him in his mysterious home, a kind of bazaar full of toys and trinkets. A crowd of gnomes is busy filling the boxes of sayings, which then some angels go to dispense to the good children. On the contrary, an ugly face of Befanone goes to whip the bad urchins. The various scenes, always attractive and elegant, end with a happy party of children.
