Jimmy has a unique Christmas tradition. Each Christmas Eve he aims his slingshot skyward and fires a personal message to heaven. The custom is Jimmy's little way of saying a special prayer on a special day. He prays that "the infant Jesus will be born in many hearts." One amazing Christmas, his prayer was answered in a most unexpected way. Accompanied by his guardian angel, Jimmy visits the Holy Family, and they encourage him to make his wide-eyed wish come true. Together Jimmy and his "angel buddy" travel the world delivering figures of the infant Jesus to people setting up their Nativity scenes. Join Jimmy on his journey, and don't be surprised if, somewhere along the way, his Christmas prayer becomes your own.
