Jeremy really, really loves Christmas. All he wants is for each Christmas to be perfect; mince pies, stockings, mistletoe and especially, (and this is the icing on the Christmas cake)... lots and lots of SNOW! But, who exactly brings the snow? Santa? Rudolph? Jack Frost? No, it's the one job left in the heavy hands of the Trolls of Winter. However, the trolls are fed up with never getting any of the credit. It's always those cheery, little elves and that red nosed reindeer celebrated at Christmas, while the hard working trolls miss out. Not once have they been on an advent calendar or featured in a carol, so this year, unless they get their ugly mugs on at least one Christmas card, there will be NO SNOW!
