It’s Christmastime in the forest. A thick blanket of snow has covered the trees, bushes, and ground. The forest animals have already gotten their presents. Santa brought Wolf new ice skates: how fun it is to glide across the mirror-smooth ice! But suddenly, the poor animal slips and has such an unfortunate fall that he twists his ankle. Wolf calls out to his friends for help, but neither Bear nor Fox have the time to assist him. Then, Hare arrives at the shore of the lake and spots Wolf howling in pain. Hare suspects the predator is faking it and is all ready to hop on his way, but nagging doubt forces him to stay put all the same.
