Falling Like Snowflakes (2024) Movie Script


(camera shutter clicking)

(people chattering, laughing)

Woman: Tegan, I can't decide
which one I like the most,
but this one here, this reminds
me of Christmas growing up.
Ah, the stellar dendrite.
It's what most people think of
when they talk about snowflakes.
and perfectly symmetrical.
Just like the star on top
of our Christmas tree.
Yes. Now, this one,
the fern dendrite,
under the right conditions,
humidity, temperature
and all that,
it's a little bit lighter,
which makes it
perfect for skiing.
Because lighter snowflakes
means powdery snow.
I've talked about this before.
I know, and you are
an amazing photographer.
Well, thank you.
I just hope they get some
good bids at the auction.
I'm sure it'll be a big
success on Christmas Eve.
Oh, big enough to
make all the repairs
at the community center,
starting with fixing the heater?
Are you kidding?
Who doesn't love snowflakes?
Well, speaking of the center,
I have to get to class.
Okay, have fun.
See you later.

I especially like how
you capture the shaded side
of the snowman on this one.
Tom this is great.
(class applauding)
(class applauding)
Julie, I love the contrast here,
the tree line
against the sunrise.
It really grabs your attention.
Thanks, Tegan.
I'm also impressed you
woke up so early to take it,
on your Christmas break, too.
My dad had to plow
the snow up on Glacier Ridge.
He let me come along.
Well, nothing says dedication
like getting up before the sun.
(class laughing)
And remember, everyone,
your photographs say more
about you than the image
that you're capturing.
How do you mean?
Well, a photograph is
a moment frozen in time,
without you that
moment can't happen.
How you see it and what you see,
you're at the heart of every
photograph you take.
You mean like with
your pictures of snowflakes?
Okay, well, what about that?
We all know that no two
snowflakes are the same,
but if we look closely,
we can see that there are
35 different types of
snowflakes that we know of.
Really! There are hexagons,
columns, needles,
some are extremely rare
and need precise
weather conditions,
but they're there if
you're willing to keep looking,
and that says a lot about you.
Does that mean you're the heart
of your snowflake pictures,
because you keep looking?
Sometimes I think
it's the photos that
you haven't taken that
can answer that question.
I'm sorry, everyone.
They need this room
for the wreath-making class,
but we'll talk more
about snowflakes next time.
Boy: Yeah, like will it
start snowing in here
before the heater gets fixed?
I know, I know. Everybody put it
on your Christmas list.
Maybe Santa will pull through
and get us a heater.
Bye, everybody.

Julie, where's your ride?
It's snowing pretty heavy
up on Crescent Pass.
My dad had to
make sure it was clear,
so he said he might
be a little late.
Oh. Okay, well, why don't you
come with me? I'll take you.
- Really?
- Yeah!

Hey, Dad.
Oh, sweetie. I'm so sorry.
I was just about
to come get you.
That's okay,
my teacher gave me a ride.
Tegan, this is my dad.
Hi, Noah.
Hi, Tegan.
You guys know each other?
Um, your dad and I grew up
in Willow Creek together.
It's been a while, though.
It has, yeah.
Why are you guys
acting so weird?
- What? No. Sweetie, no.
- No.
We're not...
We're not acting weird.
It's just, uh, it's just
been a long time. That's all.
How was, uh, how was your class?
Great. Can I put my stuff
in the back of the car?
Uh, yeah.
No peeking.
Okay. What, is it my imagination
or is she being pretty
tight-lipped about that class?
Christmas is coming.
Ah. I can take a hint.
Okay, well, I better get going.
Hey, uh, how is your dad
enjoying retirement?
Oh, well,
he's loving the warmth,
but I think around this time
of year he misses the snow.
There's nothing like
a white Christmas.
But he's very
happy you came back
and took over
the family business.
Yeah, yeah.
Well, it was good timing.
Turns out I was never very
good at sitting behind a desk.
Really? I thought what
you did was very important.
What was it?
Atmospheric science?
Yeah, it's just a fancier way
of saying "weatherman" really.
Then when I saw your dad
was stepping down, this, uh,
this felt right.
Hm. Well, I'll tell him
you said hi.
Merry Christmas.
You, too. Merry Christmas.

(phone ringing)
Hey, quick question.
Do you have time to
swing by the gallery tomorrow?
Yeah, sure. Why?
Somebody wants to meet you.
Charlotte: Well, does the name
Calvin Garrett ring any bells?
Calvin Garrett,
isn't that the guy that runs
the ski resort up on Bear Tooth?
Yes, and the guy who collects
art from all over the world.
- That guy.
- Why does he want to meet me?
I don't know.
All they told me was that
the guy stays in
Bear Tooth for the holidays,
but apparently he has a flight
into the city tomorrow afternoon
and he's not going
back until Christmas Eve.
So whatever that means.
I will be there first thing.
Thanks, Tegan.
Thanks, Charlotte.

Good morning.
What? Oh. Hi.
Uh-oh. I know that look.
It's the one that says
you're a million miles away.
Oh, sorry. I'm just headed
to a meeting at the gallery.
- Oh, yeah?
- Yeah.
You know, I took Julie
over there the other day.
- We saw your snowflakes.
- Oh, really?
Yeah, you've always been
a great photographer, Tegan,
but those...
Those are really special.
Thank you.
You always encouraged me
to keep up with the photography.
Well, I would say
that you've taken a step
well past our high school
yearbook pictures.
But you were there
from the beginning.
Well, uh, you...
You have a meeting to get to.
Right. Yeah.
I should get back up
to Crescent Pass.
Oh, um, how's the weather
up there. Is it snowy?
Uh, yeah, it's coming down
pretty hard, actually,
and it looks like there's
another front on the way.
It could be a big one.
How big?
Uh, not sure just yet,
but the humidity's
a lot higher than normal
and the wind's
really picking up, so.
Say, 30, 40 miles an hour?
Somewhere in there. Yeah.
Huh, and what about the snow?
Uh, looks like 50-50 right now.
Okay, but the chances
are going up?
Yeah. Why the sudden
interest in the snowstorm?
Oh. Oh. Just curious.
Well, it should stay
up on higher elevations.
Won't even make it
down to Willow Creek.
So, it's nothing to worry about.
Oh. Okay.
Well, I should get going.
Drive safe.
- Thanks.
- Bye.

These are remarkable, Tegan.
My assistant was right.
She was here the other day.
Said I needed to
see them for myself.
Thank you, Mr. Garrett.
How do you do it?
They're so small and delicate,
but your photographs
are so vivid.
Well, nothing fancy. Just a dark
wool cloth and a macro lens.
It's the only way to catch
the snowflake as it falls
and take a picture
before it melts.
Very inventive.
And cold.
When I was a boy, I used to try
and catch snowflakes
on my tongue.
I used to do the same.
I used to imagine
they tasted like clouds.
Do you know how many different
kinds of snowflakes there are?
35, that we know of.
But I only see
34 photographs here.
Is one missing?
The 12-sided stellar dendrite.
It's probably the rarest
snowflake there is.
Of course, finding it requires
very specific
weather conditions.
The wind,
the temperature, altitude.
You really know your snowflakes.
So do you. That's why I think
that if anyone can find it,
you can, and if you do,
I'll bid for
the whole collection. All 35.
And when I bid on
something I never lose.
Oh, Mr. Garrett,
that's very generous.
Charlotte also tells me
the community center is
in need of some
pretty serious repairs.
The heater's been on the fritz
for a couple weeks now.
- Among other things.
- Yeah.
Then I would be happy to also
make a donation to the center.
Whatever it takes
to get everything fixed.
Thank you.
I don't know what to say,
but the auction is
in less than a week.
That doesn't really
give me a lot of time.
You said that you imagined that
the snowflakes
tasted like clouds?
Me, I tried to catch them,
because I thought there was
a tiny touch of Christmas
magic in each other.
Could be there's a little
Christmas magic out there
waiting for you.
What do you say?
I say I will see you
here on Christmas Eve,
Wonderful. Tegan, Charlotte.

Tegan, this is incredible.
I mean, this is Calvin Garrett,
plus he loved your snowflakes.
Do you have any idea what
a difference this could make?
Believe me, I know.
Okay, but if this stellar
denture thing is so rare...
It's a stellar dendrite.
Right, how are you going
to find it by Christmas Eve?
Charlotte, trust me,
if that snowflake is out there,
I'm going to do
everything I can to find it.
So, wish me luck.
Good luck!
Suzanne. Hi!
I hope I'm not too early.
I'm really looking forward
to showing you my photographs
for the auction.
Our meeting. Yes, absolutely.
Is everything okay?
It's fine. No, yeah. Just a...
Just a friend of mine.
She's off chasing snowflakes.
Snowflakes, why?
Well, if she finds
the right one,
it will help make
the auction a massive success.
Not to mention a lot more people
will know about her photos.
Let's chat inside, shall we?
Snowflakes. Really?

Tegan, everything okay?
Yeah, everything's fine.
Just enjoying the view.
Taking some pictures.
Yeah, it's a good place for it.
Yeah, I remember
you said you were heading
up to Crescent Pass,
figured you'd be coming along
this way on your way back.
Uh-huh. Well, here I am.
Here you are.
So, how are things
looking up there, weather-wise?
Uh, yeah. It's good.
Roads should be clear
until the new front
comes through,
but it is going to
pack quite a punch.
That's what I wanted
to talk to you about.
Ever since we talked
I started following
the storm on the weather app.
Following it? Why?
Well, heavy winds,
rising humidity,
big chance of snow. Noah, look.
This storm has the perfect
atmospheric conditions to form
a 12-sided stellar dendrite.
A what?
It's a snowflake,
a very rare snowflake,
and I need to get
a picture of it.
Hang on, hang on, hang on.
If I can just get to
the center of the storm,
even for a few minutes,
it'd be the best
chance I ever had.
Tegan, do you have any idea
how dangerous that would be?
You can't go up there
looking for some snowflake.
I can, if you come with me.
You weren't just here
taking pictures, were you?
Took a few.
No, no, no.
You were waiting for me.
This is like that Christmas
that you talked me into
sledding down Crystal Peak.
That was fun.
No, it wasn't fun.
I broke my arm.
It was a great story.
This is not going to be
one of our great stories, Tegan.
I just need you to navigate
and help me find
the center of the storm.
This is what
you're good at, Noah.
You got a degree
in atmospheric science.
It's why you left town.
You're right.
I know a lot about this stuff,
which is why you should
check that app again.
It's perfect conditions.
I told you.
It's perfect conditions for
what might be the biggest storm
- we've had in years.
- You don't understand.
You're right,
I don't understand.
What is so important
about this snowflake?
Those pictures you saw
at the gallery,
there's a snowflake missing,
and if I can get it
by Christmas Eve,
this auction's going to help
a lot of people in this town,
and that makes the snowflake
very important to me.
So, I have to try.
With or without you.

Fresh out of the oven.
Ah, I thought
I smelled gingerbread.
Thanks, kiddo.
These look delicious.
Is everything okay?
Hm? Yeah, I'm just planning out
my schedule for tomorrow.
I know what a weather
map looks like.
Is that storm coming
to Willow Creek?
No, no, it's going to keep
heading west, and lucky for us,
because we don't want
anything to do with this one.
Tegan sent the class an email.
She's going up into
the mountains tomorrow
to find that snowflake.
So, she had to cancel.
Ah. Well, I'm sorry
to hear that, sweetie.
I know how much
you enjoy her class.
It's okay.
It's for a good cause.
Yeah, it is.
You and Tegan were, like,
a thing back then, right?
What? Where did that come from?
Before, when you said
you were friends,
you both just got this look.
What look?
This look where you
don't want to talk about it
because if you did
it might get weird.
It was a long time ago, kiddo.
What happened?
Nothing happened.
I just went away to college
and she went away to college
and we both got kind of
wrapped up in our lives
and started drifting apart.
Before long, we lost touch.
Then you met Mom.
Yeah, and not long
after that you came along
and that was
the best day of my life.
I'm glad we live
here now, though.
You and Tegan
can be friends again.
She's going to be okay, right?
You know,
with the storm and all?
Yeah, she's going to
be just fine.



I can't talk you out of this?
I'm afraid not.
And you are going in that.
Yeah, why not?
Because the winds up there will
blow this right off the road.
I'll be okay.
Okay won't get you
through 40-mile winds
and zero visibility.
Don't tell me
you're worried about me.
Julie happens to think that
you are a very good teacher.
I just think
you're a little stubborn.
Mm, well, can it be both?
All this for a picture
of some snowflake?
No, all of this for
what's important to me.
This town,
the people in it, Christmas.
Isn't that reason enough?
Alright. If we are
going to do this...
Uh, we?
We are going to get
a few things straight.
If the storm is what
I think it's going to be,
it's going to get
pretty dicey up there.
Well, yeah.
So, if I say we turn around,
we turn around, okay?
No discussion, no debate.
Fine. What else?
We are not going in that.
Well, how are we
going to get there?
Grab your stuff, follow me.

We're going in that?
Uh-huh. Built to last
and capable of getting through
any storm imaginable.
It's a little overkill,
don't you think?
What are you talking about?
Well, we're not driving
to the North Pole.
Nope, but we could.
What, and stampede
all of Santa's reindeer?
Are you going to be
a Grinch the entire time?
Never mind.
Step right up.
There you are.
Thank you.
Hey, Dad.
Hey, sweetie.
(groaning, chuckling)
I made some sandwiches
and stuff for your trip.
I also packed the rest of
the gingerbread cookies, too.
Thank you, honey.
what are you doing here?
Noah called.
Julie and I are going to
hang out while you two are gone.
Thanks again, Charlotte.
We're going to have so much fun.
I'm going to help get
ready for the auction.
Practically the whole
town's going to be there.
Because of your snowflake.
I'm sorry, what?
News might have leaked
about what you two are doing.
I know! I just have a really
good feeling about this time.
I hope you find your snowflake.
Thank you, Julie.
Okay, well, you have fun, kiddo.
Alright, drive safe, you two.
You ready for a little
dashing through the snow?
I'm not sure how much dashing
there'll be, but lead the way.

Snow is falling
Christmas is calling
Wrapping gifts with a bow
It's been one long year
Since I felt your cheer
So, laugh with me
Next to the Christmas tree
See how good the nog can be
So, when was the last time
you were in a snow plow?
Well, it's been a while.
Since way before my dad retired.
Probably hasn't changed much.
Do you mind?
No, yeah. Good thinking.
That's great.
Yeah, my dad's plow
didn't have a radio.
Huh. No kidding.
- See? This is better.
- Yeah.
(woman singing
indistinctly on radio)
I'd love some more poinsettias
up front, please. Thank you.
Oh, that looks great.
Oh, come with me.
Ooh. So, a lot of this
is a little uneven.
Do you mind just helping out?
Charlotte. Hi.
It's beginning to
look a bit like Christmas.
It is.
Oh, it's my favorite
time of year.
That special feeling
you get when you just know
all your Christmas wishes
are about to come true.
Was there something
you needed, or?
These are
your friend's pictures,
the snowflakes you
were telling me about.
Yes, Tegan Ainsley.
They're lovely.
Yeah, she's amazing.
She takes photos all year round
and she teaches at the center,
too, but these snowflakes,
they're sort of like
her holiday tradition.
But she has so many
for the auction already.
Why does she need another one?
when Calvin Garrett asks you
to find a particular snowflake,
you go out and find it.
Calvin Garrett.
The guy with
the huge art collection?
He likes snowflakes.
Well, I am reviewing
your photos that you submitted
and I'll let you know if any
are a fit for the auction, okay?
Thanks. Oh, and I may still
have a few others to show you.
Well, we're running out of time.
Yeah, these won't take long.
- Merry Christmas.
- Merry Christmas.
Christmas star
Christmas star
Shining down into your heart
Doesn't matter who you are
See those clouds up there?
Uh, snow clouds?
You know what that means?
That degree in atmospheric
science is finally paying off?
Bingo. We are headed
in the right direction.
Although, I'm sure that
fancy weather app of yours
comes in handy sometimes, too.
Wh... Last I heard,
you guys with the degrees in
atmospheric science use all
the latest high tech equipment.
Yeah, but like
my grandpa used to say.
If you don't like
the weather up here then...
Wait a few minutes.
My dad says the same thing.
No kidding.
Hey, are you,
uh, are you hungry?
Julie's gingerbread cookies
will change your life.
Well, I am a Christmas
cookie connoisseur,
so I might have to
call you out on that one.
Be my guest.
Blessed baby...
Told you.
Christmas star,
Christmas star
Shining down into your heart
(phone ringing)
Oh, it's Charlotte.
Hi, Charlotte.
Hey, how's it going up there?
We're getting closer,
but the storm's
still a ways off.
Is everything okay?
Yup, everything's fine.
I did just have a very
interesting conversation
about your snowflakes.
Uh, what do you mean?
This photographer came by,
Suzanne Blanchard.
I don't think you know her.
What about her?
Charlotte: Well, she's been
trying to get her stuff into
the gallery for quite some time,
and she seemed a little too
interested in snowflakes,
especially once she learned
that Calvin Garrett is
a major fan of your photos.
Well, she's a photographer.
I'm sure it was
just a professional interest.
No, no. The look on her face
was definitely not professional.
What do you think
she's going to do?
I don't know.
Maybe nothing, but just...
Just keep me posted, okay?
Yeah, I'll call you if
there's news. Thanks, Charlotte.
Good luck.
Oh, there's a photographer
taking interest
in my snowflakes.
Ah. Well, can you blame them?
The pictures are beautiful.
Who doesn't love snowflakes?
Yeah, well,
if we don't find this one,
a lot of people are
going to be disappointed.
Well, I guess
we just have to find it.
Yeah, I probably
should have told you this,
but this is the third Christmas
I've gone looking for it.
Ah. So, that's what
Charlotte meant by having
a good feeling...
this time. Right.
But now I have
people's hopes up,
and I don't know
why I thought this year
would be any different.
Look, just because
you haven't found it yet,
doesn't mean you should
stop believing it's out there.
You really think so?
Yeah. Look, when you study
the weather as long as I have,
you start to see things that
you never thought possible.
Like air and ice and snow
all rolled up like burritos.
You study long enough,
you start to believe
anything's possible.
(phone pinging)
Oh, uh, we have to stop.
What? Why?
I just have to check something.
It won't take long.
Uh... Yeah, okay.
Uh, Crescent Pass is
just a few miles out.
- Perfect.
- Great.

I took that up on Glacier Ridge.
Hi. I didn't know
anyone else was here.
Just me. Class was cancelled.
Oh, shouldn't you be out doing
all that 'tis the season stuff?
I need to finish
my dad's Christmas present.
Tegan said it was
okay for me to be here.
You know, speaking of Tegan,
I saw some of
her pictures at the gallery.
Those snowflakes are incredible.
She calls them tiny pieces
of art falling from the sky.
Oh. Well, she knows
what she's talking about.
But, um, they're so small.
I... I can't imagine
how she does it.
Well, she uses a 90mm macro lens
with a polarizing filter
to help cut down on the glare.
And that's it?
You have to do it really quick,
you know, before they melt.
That doesn't sound so hard.

(Noah sighing)

Will this do?
Yeah, this is good.
Looks like
the wind's picking up.
Well, with all due respect to
your mountain man instincts,
I think we can do
a little bit better than that.
What are you doing?
This is a portable
weather station.
It monitors temperature,
humidity, wind speeds.
No, I know what it is.
I'm asking what
you're doing with it.
Well, you remember how I said
that snowflakes rely heavily
on atmospheric conditions?
The closer we get to the storm,
the closer we get to finding
the one that we're looking for.
And this thing is
going to help us find it?
Well, the reason every
snowflake is different
is 'cause they each follow their
own pathway through the sky.
Different path,
different shapes.
The thing is...
a 12-sided snowflake
is actually two
six-sided snowflakes fused
together on the way down.
It's totally random.
What are the odds of that?
Pretty small.
Well, that's what
makes it so rare.
I mean, they have
to be on the exact same path
to find each other.
I had no idea Mother Nature
was such a matchmaker.
Wow. I never thought
of it like that.
Anyway, the point is by
monitoring conditions,
we can keep an eye
on any changes
until everything is just right.
Makes sense.
So, if you don't
have any objections...
Be my guest.
The data's downloading
on my cell phone.
It won't be too long.
Great. Well, we can just...
enjoy the view while we wait.
You really missed
her here, didn't you?
That's why I moved back,
actually, after we lost Sarah,
my wife.
I just really wanted a place
where Julie could grow up
and love her home
as much as I did.
When I saw your
dad was retiring,
I couldn't think
of a better place.
She's a really good kid, Noah.
Do you know how many stories
Julie told me about you?
How many times I wanted
to just come say hi?
I wish you had.
What if our memories
weren't the same?
They meant so much to me. I...
I didn't want to lose them too.
They meant a lot to me too.
Well, I should take pictures
while we're waiting.
Put out your hands.
What's this?
Just keep it flat...
and try not to move.
- (camera shutter clicking)
- Ahh...
So, that's how it's done.
(camera shutter clicking)
Just a few more.
(camera shutter clicking)
Take your time.
(phone chiming)
The data's coming in.
Oh, you got
a snowflake by your eye.
No snowflake falls
in the wrong place.
That's something
my mom used to say.
Does she chase snowflakes too?
She used to.
I'm sorry, Tegan. I...
I had no idea.
How could you?
We should get going.
The equipment is still not
in the range of the storm,
so the reading
is not 100 percent.
But judging by the way
the humidity is going up
and the temp's dropping,
you were right about
the size of this thing.
You ready to turn around?
Are you kidding?
These conditions
just keep getting better.
Which, I take it, means there
were no 12-sided snowflakes
in that last batch of pictures.
- No, not even close.
- Okay.
Well, maybe Mother Nature's
just trying to find
the perfect match.
Feels like the wind's
really picking up too.
Wow. You really are
one with nature.
- I wouldn't go that far.
- So, how does it work?
You look out in the distance
and the Ghost of Christmas
Weather speaks to you.
You know what?
There's something
I want to show you.
It's just a little detour.
It won't take long.
It'll be fun.

(camera shutter clicking)
(camera shutter clicking)
(camera shutter clicking)
(camera shutter clicking)
(camera shutter clicking)

I thought I'd seen
every road, every trail in
these mountains, but this?
I have never seen this.
Not many people have.
Where are we?
Follow me.
(wind gusting)
What is this place called?
I just call it Max's Mountain.
Wait, Max as in
your grandfather?
There was a guy who knew his way
around this part of the world.
I remember he was
such a wonderful man
and he always
told the best stories.
Yeah, that's what got me
interested in the weather
actually, his stories.
What do you mean?
Well, first time
he brought me up here,
it was almost Christmas,
and I was just a little kid,
but even,
then I had this feeling
like he was sharing
something really special.
He always said you can see
things much more clearly
from up here,
if you know how to look.
It was years before I realized
that he was talking about a lot
more than just tracking a storm.
Your grandpa
was a storm tracker?
Well, not officially.
Whenever there was a
blizzard or something up here,
he'd head off
to get a closer look.
Isn't that dangerous?
He did have
a couple close calls.
In fact, that's how he
found this place, actually.
Got caught in a whiteout,
had to tuck in for the night,
and when he woke up,
a few feet from the edge with a
view as far as you could see.
That's amazing.
He also claimed to be able to
smell when storm was coming.
Come on.
Yeah, one sniff and
all he needed was a map
and a full tank of gas,
and he'd be good to go.
That's not a thing. Is it?
It sounded cool
when I was a kid.
Still kind of does.
So, what else has
Grandpa Max taught you?
I mean, besides which way the
wind blows, of course.
Ah, well...
You see that spot
on the horizon over there?
There's a star that comes out
right around Christmas,
just before sunset,
for a few minutes.
It's the brightest
thing in the sky.
The Christmas Star.
That's what we used to call it.
I'd like to see that.
But, uh, Max's Mountain is more
than just a great
Christmas card selfie.
What do you mean?
It's also the best place to hook
up to a weather satellite feed.
From here, the range
on your portable station
should be just about doubled.
Are you serious?
Yeah, we'll be able to figure
out the best place to be
to find that snowflake of yours.
Hold on. That doesn't sound
like Grandpa Max talking.
Well, Grandpa Max
taught me a lot of things,
but, you know,
you'd be surprised
what you could pick up from a
career in atmospheric science.
Well, I'll go get my station.
You know what? Let me do it.
You snap some photos before
we both turn into icicles.
Good idea.
Okay, there we go.
(camera shutter clicking)
Everything okay, Charlotte?
Yeah, yeah.
No, I'm just... Cheers.
(camera shutter clicking)
(camera shutter clicking)
- (camera shutter clicking)
- (blowing)
(camera shutter clicking)
I used to do this
when I was a kid.
Who didn't?
It's so fun.
Okay, it's all set up.
Should be good to go.
We can wait in the cab.
Can't have you
freezing for your art.
Okay, wait.
Hang on, hang on, hang on.
- What are you doing?
- Just a sec.
- Teagan, it's freezing.
- You're the one who said
this would make for
a good Christmas card selfie.
Say "Merry Christmas."
Both: Merry Christmas.
- (camera shutter clicking)
- Okay, now, I'm cold.
All right, let's go.
Tegan: Oof!
(Noah sighing)
You know,
I don't remember snowflakes
being such a big thing
with you before.
It's a proverb my mom found.
"A snowflake never
falls in the wrong place."
It means everything
happens for a reason,
even the things
that break your heart.
I'm sorry, T.
We have to talk about...
No, it's okay.
We started chasing
snowflakes together,
just for fun.
And then, suddenly,
we were looking for
all the different kinds.
I was learning how
to photograph them.
She even bought me
that weather station,
so I could keep
looking for them...
by myself.
So, I did,
I kept looking for them.
I'm sure she's really
happy that you did.
(phone chiming)
The storm's
getting stronger. Look.
(engine revving)
(phone vibrating)
Mr. Garrett!
What a lovely surprise!
Thought I'd check in,
see how Teagan's doing.
Charlotte: Oh, yes.
Yes, uh, she's doing great.
She's on the trail of her
snowflake as we speak.
She's getting
closer by the minute.
Mr. Garrett: Glad to hear it.
I had another
photographer reach out.
I believe you know her.
Suzanne Blanchard?
Suzanne, yeah, yeah I do.
Mr. Garrett: Apparently,
she's also done some
snowflake photography.
When I mentioned the
12-sided stellar dendrite,
she said she was sure she
could help us out with that.
Help out how?
Mr. Garrett: By completing the
set of pictures for the auction.
After all, that's what
it's about, isn't it?
This doesn't
change my offer to Teagan,
but it wouldn't hurt
to have a backup too.
Charlotte: No, I understand.
I haven't seen Suzanne's
snowflakes, of course,
so I'll need you
to vet them for me.
Let me know what you think.
One way or the other, this is
all for a good cause, right?
- You're right.
- Mr. Garrett: We'll talk soon.
Merry Christmas, Charlotte.
Merry Christmas, Mr. Garrett.

Oh, wind gusts are up to 60
and chance of snow at 70%.
I think we've
caught up with the storm.
Not yet, we haven't.
- What?
- Trust me,
this is going to get a lot more
exciting before it's over.
Oh, exciting.
Well, maybe we should stop...
Probably stop
before it gets... um...
Yeah. (chuckling)
I know a place.
I'm dreaming
My Christmas Day
That feeling in your heart
It tells you it's the start
Of happy season's greetings
Man: Welcome to
the Evergreen Inn.
My name is Wayne.
If there's anything you need,
you let me know.
Tegan: Thank you, Wayne.
- Thanks.
- To tell you the truth,
with this storm,
I was not expecting
any more guests tonight.
Yeah, it's pretty
rough out there.
Yeah, last I heard,
and this seems to be a big one,
and it seems to be
settling in for the night.
How is the cell phone reception?
A little bit like coming
downstairs on Christmas morning,
you just don't know
what you're going to get.
- Ah.
- All right.
Well, thanks for everything.
Wait, I got to ask...
Oh, it's the costume, right?
Well, it was always said
of Scrooge that he knew how
to keep Christmas well,
if any man alive
possessed the knowledge.
Wait, are you doing the play
A Christmas Carol?
No, I just like to quote
a little Charles Dickens
this time of year.
Goes with the outfit.
- It certainly does.
- Thank you.
No, but actually I'm in a
quartet of Christmas carolers,
and tonight is our dress
rehearsal for the big day.
- Well, that's great.
- They're all coming over later,
and you wouldn't believe the
acoustics in these mountains.
Assuming they can get here.
Oh. Well, good luck.
And to all a good night.
Okay, here we are:
two hot chocolates,
extra marshmallows.
Mm-hmm. Thanks, Charlotte.
I saw these mugs and I thought,
these are just the thing for
our little holiday sleepover.
When I was little,
Dad always said they make
them taste even better.
Oh, well,
let's test it out then.
Wow. You gotta keep these mugs.
Thanks for staying here
with me while he's away.
I just love how you two
have made everything
so merry and bright.
It's so beautiful.
Now, all I have to do is
finish Dad's Christmas present.
I see. So, that's what you've
been up to.
I want to make sure
it's a surprise,
so Tegan let me work
on it at the Center.
But I figured I'd do it at home
tonight, since he's away.
Julie, this is so lovely.
I just can't
get it right, though.
What do you mean?
See, Dad loves Christmas, and he
loves it here in Willow Creek.
Yeah, he's had a lot of
great Christmas memories
growing up here.
And I love it, too,
you know, the snow
and the mountains and all.
I mean, it makes
Christmas feel like
you can reach out and touch it.
You're right about that.
But I also knew
he came back here because of me.
it's just him and me now,
and I think he wanted to
make sure I'd be okay.
Well, he wants to
make sure you're happy.
And I want him to be
happy too, but he's alone.
No, he's not alone
because he's got you.
That's not what I mean.
Have you talked
to your dad about this?
He just smiles, makes a joke,
and then asks if there's any
more gingerbread cookies left.
So, your Christmas gift
is to show him everything
he's done for you
and all of the amazing
memories he's given you.
So, he knows he's not alone.
Does that sound dumb?
I can't think of a better way
to show your dad
how much you love him.
I want it
to be just right, though.
Well, I am very happy
to help out.
- Really?
- Mm-hmm.
And something
tells me this Christmas
might be one he'll never forget.
Okay, this one's
my favorite, though.
- Oh, yeah.
- Yeah. Use that one for sure.
I'll cut that one, too.

Hey, I talked to Wayne.
He said the town's
all buttoned up for the night
and there won't be anywhere
to eat until the morning.
- Oh.
- But I figured you'd be hungry,
and Wayne said I could
raid the fridge, so...
Just, uh... didn't really
know what you would like,
Come sit.
- Mmm.
- Yeah.
What do we have here?
Okay, well, we've got
a few cheeses left,
some meat, crackers.
It's been pretty good.
I couldn't eat another bite.
My compliments to the chef.
Oh. Thank you.
But I hope you saved
some room for dessert.
Oh, please tell me you have
more of Julie's cookies.
Well, I'm afraid not,
but I do have something
that might brighten
the holiday season.
Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho!
The perfect end
to the perfect meal.
Where did you get this?
Uh, well,
I'll give you one hint.
"It was always said that
Scrooge kept Christmas well."
"If a man alive
possessed the knowledge."
Thank you, Wayne.
I really love it here.
We should
come back every Christmas.
Um, I just mean
it's very beautiful here.
Yeah. Yeah, it is.
Um, anyway,
I should look at the next batch
of photographs
from Max's Mountain.
Yeah, and we should get
an early start in the morning,
so I'm gonna go ahead and, uh...
say goodnight.
You know, um, people always like
when I tell them about all the
different types of snowflakes,
how each one is unique.
I mean, it sounds like a good
way to end trivia night anyway.
Yeah, I can see that.
It's trillions of snowflakes
falling every moment
and somehow,
completely by random,
two of them need
to find each other
and they have to figure out
how to not let anything
come between them.
Because both of them together,
what they have...
is even better.
What are the odds?
What are the odds?
Holy night
All is calm
All is bright
Round yon virgin
Mother and child
Holy infant
So tender and mild
Sleep in
Heavenly peace
Sleep in
Heavenly peace
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Ingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse
open sleigh, hey!
- That's great.
- Yeah.
Well, I will, uh,
see you in the morning.
Yeah, sleep well.
You, too.
What are the odds?
(phone ringing)
Charlotte: (breaking up)
Teagan, there you are.
I've been calling you
since yesterday.
Oh, Charlotte,
I can... I can barely hear you.
The reception is
terrible out here.
Charlotte: Teagan?
Teagan, hello?
Uh, yeah, I'm here.
I'm just trying to, um...
How's that?
Yeah, that's better.
How are you?
How's everything going?
Where are you?
Ugh. We ran into some
serious weather last night,
so we decided to stop.
We're at some out-of-the-way
place called the Evergreen Inn.
Okay. Is everything okay?
Yeah, everything's great.
It is so beautiful here.
It's like being
in a Christmas story.
You know,
with the chimney smoke,
and the snow,
and all the colorful lights.
Oh, and how about
everything with Noah?
Everybody playing nice?
Tegan: Are you kidding?
I couldn't have done
any of this without him.
That really does sound
like a Christmas story.
So, tell me, how does it end?
- What?
- Oh, I just mean,
are we still chasing snowflakes
or is there maybe a little
something else in the air?
Oh, that's not...
Charlotte, I'm just...
You know, he's just helping me,
that's all.
Okay. Well, I'm glad to hear it
because you are going to need
all the help
you can get right now.
- What do you mean?
- Do you remember Suzanne?
The other photographer?
I was right about her.
She reached out
to Calvin Garrett.
What? Why?
She said she has some
snowflake photos of her own, one
snowflake in particular.
The 12-sided dendrite?
No, no, no. That's not possible.
I agree, but he called me,
and he wants me to
review her photos just in case.
- In case of what?
- He really does want
the auction to be
a massive success,
and that means having
a complete set of snowflakes
for him to bid on
one way or another.
In other words, it doesn't
matter who takes the picture.
Charlotte: No, no, no.
No, it still matters.
Teagan, he loves your photos.
he's still gonna contribute
to the community center.
But we're so close. We just
need a little bit more time.
- Yeah, Teagan...
- (static hissing)
Oh, Teagan, I can't...
Charlotte, I said that
we're gonna keep looking.
- Keep breaking up.
- Hello? Charlotte?
Charlotte: Teagan, listen to me.
If you need, just...
(static hissing)
- (sighing)
- (static hissing)
Oh, no.
Good morning.
Okay, cream, sugar, black.
Couldn't remember
how you took it.
Thank you.
It's not snowing.
No, the storm moved on
last night,
took the snow with it.
How am I supposed to take
pictures of snowflakes
if it's not snowing?
Don't worry. We can catch it.
I should have been out here
first thing with
the weather station.
I'm going to go get it set up.
Hey, you don't have to do that.
What do you suggest I do, Noah?
What are you gonna...
sniff out the storm for me?
No. All I was going
to say is that,
when the wind shifted,
it took it north-northeast.
Can we still catch up with it?
Yeah, if we get
on the road right now,
we'll catch up
by the end of the day.
Good. Okay. Thank you.
No problem.
All right,
let's go get that snowflake.
Tegan tells me
you're quite the
photographer yourself.
Maybe one day you'll let me
show some of your
work in the gallery.
I don't know. Maybe, yeah.
Okay, here we are.
Come find me at the gallery
when you're through;
we'll grab some lunch.
- Okay.
- Okay.
Hey, Charlotte?
You and Teagan have been friends
for a long time, haven't you?
Yeah, pretty much forever.
So, you knew her before, when
she and my dad were, you know...
Uh-huh. Now, you're wondering
what the story is there.
Julie: Kinda.
Well, all I can tell you is
I've never met two people
who were more ready
to take on the world.
- Really?
- Yeah, the problem with that is
that sent them both in
completely different directions,
and by the time
they figured it out, well,
there was no going back.
But they're both back now.
Yeah, you're right, they are.
And who knows? With all this
Christmas spirit in the air,
you never know
what might happen.
All right, come on in.
See you later.
Oh, hey. Hi.
You remember me from yesterday?
- Yeah. Hi.
- Hi.
Oh, my name is Suzanne,
by the way.
How's your dad's
Christmas present coming along?
Uh, almost finished.
That's great,
I'm sure he's gonna
just love it.
You know what they say,
Christmas comes but once a year.
Um, class is canceled again.
Teagan's not here.
Still off chasing those
snowflakes, I'll bet.
That's a shame, though.
That's actually
why I dropped by.
It's just so fascinating to me.
You know, after what
I saw at the gallery,
I was hoping to get
a look at some others.
How come?
Oh. See?
I'm a photographer, too,
and for me, art is a process.
Some days, you find it.
Other days, it finds you.
And what better way to find it
than to learn from
the people you respect.
- Don't you think?
- Sure.
I'd just really like
to know Teagan's secret,
how she does it.
Oh, well, that's no secret.
It's not?
All you have to do is,
when you're outside,
you catch them on something,
so they don't melt right away.
That gives you time
to take the photo.
Of course.
Not much further now.
I'd say,
by the looks of those clouds,
we got a pretty good shot.
Looks like.
Did I miss something?
Well... I mean,
correct me if I'm wrong,
but I... thought we kind of
had a moment last night.
Yeah, it was very nice.
"Very nice." Okay.
You can really...
feel the magic in the air.
- Fine. It was great, okay?
- Yeah, it was great.
- I know.
- So, what's the problem?
It has nothing to do with you.
Well, I'm the only one here.
I just really don't want
to get into it right now.
Oh, no.
Oh, no, no, no, no,
no, no, no, no, no.
I understand
how you must be feeling.
- No, no, no. Hold on.
- What?
Black ice! Hold on!
(tires screeching)
You okay?
Yeah. You?
Truck's not.

No bars!
That is just
the kind of day I'm having.
Tegan, I'm so sorry.
It's not your fault.
No, it is.
I should have seen the ice.
I should have been
paying attention.
Well, I distracted you
because all I care about
is getting my pictures
on the gallery wall.
There's nothing wrong with
wanting the auction to go right.
Well, unless you're stuck in the
snow, on top of a mountain,
where no one
can hear you scream.
Yeah, you're not really
going to start screaming,
though, are you?
You're right. With my luck, I'd
probably start an avalanche.
Tegan, hey,
it's going to be okay.
called me this morning.
You know that photographer
I was telling you about?
She has some
snowflake photos of her own.
Oh. Well, does she have the one
that you're looking for?
I don't know, but Mr. Garrett
wants Charlotte to take
a look, just in case.
And if she has it, then
we can head back, right?
Uh, yeah.
(exhaling sharply)
I don't know.
You said that you've been
looking for this snowflake
for three years, right?
Is this snowflake for your mom?
I thought that
if I could do this,
I could show everyone how much
Christmas meant to her.
I mean, it's a nice way
to remember her.
You can still do that.
We're stuck, Noah.
Even if I could
find the snowflake,
how would I get it
to Charlotte in time?
What are you doing?
Do you smell that?
No. I don't smell any...
Is that... wood smoke?
And where there's smoke...
There's warmth.
Let's go.

Come on.
All I want for Christmas
is a little flurry.

So, how far does chimney
smoke carry, anyway?
Well, depends on the wind.
Well, you're the weather guy.
Okay. Uh, let's see.
Given the atmospheric
the relatively high altitude,
allowing for a reasonable
margin of error,
I would have to say...
Pretty far.
(Teagan giggling)
Stick to snowplowing.
(Noah chuckling)
(Teagan chuckling)
You know, I was wrong
about one thing.
What's that?
This might turn out to be one of
our great stories after all.
It is starting to look that way.
We've had a few, haven't we?
Yeah. We certainly have.
Hey, look!

(Suzanne panting)

Oh. Oh, finally.
(phone buzzing)
Charlotte, hi!
How are you?
I'm fine, Suzanne.
You got a minute?
Uh... oh... yeah, of course.
What can... what
can I do for you?
What was that?
Oh, uh, oh, that's
just the wind.
I'm... I'm out for a stroll,
enjoying nature's beauty.
Charlotte: That's
actually why I'm calling.
I'd like you to come by
tomorrow morning
so I can take a look
at your snowflake photos.
In the morning?
Is that a problem?
No. (chuckling)
That's no problem.
Charlotte: Okay. Great.
I'll see you at 10:00.
Oh, and Suzanne?
It's much too cold
to be out there.
Right. (Chuckling) You got it.
Thank you.

- I see it.
- (Teagan giggling)
Ah. Did Santa move his workshop?
Only one way to find out.


- Wayne?
- Well, hello there.
This is quite a surprise.
- Uh, yeah. Same here.
- Yeah.
You didn't come
all this way to tell me
how much you enjoyed
our caroling last night?
No. I... I mean, yes, the...
The music was lovely, but no.
We actually, uh, had a little
car trouble down the road.
- Yeah.
- Oh. I'm sorry to hear that.
Well, why don't you come
in? you can get warm
while we get this
all sorted out.
- Thank you.
- Okay.
Here you go.
Hot cider,
freshly squeezed from the
apples right from my own trees.
Wow. Well, it smells wonderful.
Thanks, Wayne.
Your house is beautiful.
I'm what you'd call a "Deck
the Halls" kind of guy.
Just can't seem to
get enough Christmas.
- Well, I think it looks great.
- Well, let's see about getting
that plow of yours
out of the snow.
Oh. Uh, well, let
me give you a hand.
No, no. You guys just relax.
I'm going to get somebody else
from the inn to help.
Make yourselves at home,
and I'm going to be back
before you know it.
Wayne, are you sure?
I mean, you barely even know us.
Strangers at my door at
Christmas asking for help?
What else do I need to know?

Finished Dad's
Christmas present.
It looks amazing,
ad it's all wrapped, ready to
go under the tree, too!
I was wondering if I could
keep it here until Christmas.
I really want
to surprise my dad.
Of course. I've got
just the spot for it.
He won't suspect a thing.
Have you heard from my dad yet?
No, I haven't.
Me, neither. He usually
calls when he's gone.
You know what? I spoke
with Teagan this morning.
They still haven't found the
snowflake just yet,
but she said everything's fine.
I was looking on the map at
the storm where they're going.
It's pretty bad.
I promise you, your dad will
be back in plenty of time
for you to surprise him
on Christmas morning.
You're right.
Now, let's go hide this thing,
and what do you say we
grab some lunch?
Maybe you can help me finish
my Christmas shopping.
But Christmas is in three days.
Please, don't remind me!
(Julie chuckling)
- Hello?
- (beeping)
- (beeping)
- (Noah sighing)
(sighing) If you're looking
for a weather update,
I don't want to know.
Whichever way the storm
is going is fine,
as long as we can
get there, too.
Eh, I was actually trying
to get a hold of Julie.
Oh. Any luck?
No, not since yesterday.
Oh. She worries about you
when you're away.
Yeah, and she can read a
weather map as well as I can,
which means she's
probably keeping an eye
on everything happening up here.
Well, we'll get back tonight,
and you two will have
Christmas together.
Don't worry.
What about you?
What do you do for Christmas?
Well, Charlotte
and I have dinner,
and then we wrap presents.
And we take a walk in the town
and look at all the lights.
- Oh, yeah?
- Yeah.
Yeah. Julie and I do
the same thing.
- Really?
- Yeah. It's really beautiful.
We love it.
Yeah, it is.
(horn honking)
Oh, great.
Thank you, Wayne.
Yeah. We should probably, uh...
Yeah, we...
Well, thanks for
everything, Wayne.
Yes. Thank you. We couldn't
have done it without you.
You got to stay
on Santa's good side.
- (all laughing)
- I don't think
you have to worry about that.
Have a merry Christmas.
And merry Christmas to you both.
Merry Christmas.
- Drive safe now, okay?
- (Noah chuckling)
- Alright.
- Bye.

I am not getting any bars.
It's okay. I'll try later.
I'm sorry for what I
said this morning
about you sniffing
out the storm.
(sighing) You were upset.
I still shouldn't
have snapped on you.
Everything you've done...
I don't know how to thank you.
You can thank me after we
get that snowflake.
See, that's what I mean.
You really believe it's out
there and that I can find it,
and you helped me remember
why it's important.
Thank you for that.
Thank you.
What for?
Well, here I am, driving
into the biggest snowstorm
to come along in years,
hunting for that one snowflake
in of a hundred trillion
to get a photo to take
back home, and...
I get to do it with you.
Christmas came early this year.

Is that... is that snow?
(Teagan chuckling)
Here we go.

How you doing over there?
I told you it'd
get more exciting.
I will never doubt you again.
(grunting) Is this it?
Are... are we here?
Uh, yeah. Yeah.
I'd say this is it.
I will find a place
to pull over.
Oh. Uh, you need to find
somewhere with trees
or something to block the wind.
- What?
- Oh, well, like,
the way that it's blowing,
I might not be able
to keep the snowflakes
on the cloth,
and then it won't work.
Yeah. No problem.

Alright, look.
The wind chill up here
is going to cut
right through you,
so we got to make this quick.
Don't worry.
Okay. I'm going to turn around
so if we have to make
a clean getaway,
at least we'll
be pointed downhill.
- Okay. I'll meet you out there.
- (wind blowing)
Teagan, wait!
(wind blowing)

(camera snapping repeatedly)
(wind blowing harder)


Teagan, where are you?

Teagan, keep calling!
Noah, over here!
Noah, over here!
Teagan! Teagan!
(Teagan grunting)
- Are you okay?
- Yeah. Are you?
Yeah. Yeah.
- Whew!
- It's not slowing down.
Teagan: I can't even see in
front of me out there.
Road's going to get a lot worse.
We should get out of here.
Do you want to check,
see if you got it?
My camera.
Here. I'll find it.
No, no, no, no, don't, don't.
It's too dangerous.
Your pictures.
What if you get lost?
I don't even know where
it would be.
I don't... I don't know
where I was.
Let's just go home.

(engine starting)

(phone ringing)
It's Julie.
Hey, kiddo.
Dad, where have you been?
You were supposed to call me.
I know. I'm sorry, sweetie.
The cell reception's
been bad up here,
but we're on our way home now.
Did Teagan find her snowflake?
Well, uh, you're on speaker.
You can ask her yourself.
- Hi, Julie!
- Julie: Teagan, hi.
I couldn't believe it. I was
looking at the weather map.
Everything was perfect.
Yep. Everything was perfect,
but... not this time.
You didn't find your snowflake?
I'm sorry.
Me, too.
Look. We'll tell you all about
it when we get home, okay?
We'll see you soon.
Okay. Bye. Bye, Teagan.
Bye, Julie!

Sure you don't
want to come with?
Julie would love to see you.
I'll see her later.
Teagan, um... I'm really sorry.
A snowflake never falls
in the wrong place,
but sometimes, it doesn't
fall where you hoped.
Merry Christmas, Noah.

(Noah sighing)
Merry Christmas.
Charlotte: Well, thanks so
much for coming in, Suzanne.
Mr. Garrett is very interested
in hearing about your photos.
Oh, well, I'm very
happy to do it.
I'm so just excited we
finally get to work together.
Yeah. Uh, quick question here.
What am I looking at?
Snowflakes. Aren't they
Oh. It's just a
little hard to tell.
They're slightly
out of focus here.
Suzanne: Oh, that was
an artistic choice.
My vision for the exhibit.
Your vision is to take photos
that make
people slightly queasy?
To capture the randomness,
the chaos of nature's
beauty during a snowstorm.
Charlotte: Okay. You sure
you weren't shivering,
maybe a little cold?
Look. The thing is,
I really wanted this gig,
but to tell you the truth,
I'm not exactly what
you call a Christmas person.
Ah. I understand,
but to tell you
the truth, Suzanne,
I am.
Merry Christmas.

- Noah!
- Hey.
Um, sorry. I probably
should have called first,
but, uh, thought
you might want this.
You went back?
Yeah. Well, the
storm moved on last night,
and the roads were clear,
so it wasn't really a big deal.
Uh... this is...
Noah, I don't even
know what to say. Thank you.
Yeah. Yeah. The bag's insulated,
so the camera was protected,
and I warmed it up in the truck.
So should be fine.
Uh, come in. Come in.
It's freezing.

I can't stay too long.
All that snow. It's going
to be a busy day, so...
Oh. Well, I'll
just make you some tea,
and you can take it with you.
And it'll keep you warm.
Well, hey. Don't you want
to... don't you want to check?
Uh, I'll do it later.
Come on. You worked
hard for those photos,
and I don't know.
I'd hate to think that
we went through all that
and I don't even get to look.
no one's ever done anything
like this for me before.
I can't tell you
what it means to me,
and these past couple of days,
being with you again,
it's brought back some
really wonderful memories.
And it's reminded me that no
matter how bad we want it,
not every Christmas
wish comes true.
That's right.
Not every Christmas
wish comes true,
but... you only need one,
if it's the right one.
Not many people get
a second chance
to figure out if they're
supposed to be together, Teagan,
and this is ours.
This is our chance,
and the way I see it,
if a couple of snowflakes
can figure it out,
then... we should
be able to as well.
If we're willing to try.
One Christmas wish.
The right wish.

Is that...
(both laughing)

Hello there. Excuse me.
Thank you so much, everybody,
for being here tonight
and for helping to make this
year's Christmas auction
a massive success!
We really appreciate
everybody's generosity.
Thank you. Thank you.
And I would especially
like to thank
my friend and remarkable
photographer Teagan Ainsley.
(Noah chuckling)
Thank you.
Now, some of you may not know
that Teagan weathered
a storm, literally,
to bring us an exquisite photo
of a very rare
12-sided snowflake!
Well, I could not have done
it without this guy here.
Teagan, get on up here.
- Oh, no.
- Come on.
- Man: Teagan!
- Charlotte: Teagan!
Yeah! Get up here! (chuckling)
Teagan, do you have
anything you'd like to say
about your beautiful photo?
Uh, well,
in order to find this
12-sided snowflake,
Mother Nature had to conspire
to bring two very unique
six-sided snowflakes together.
(crowd applauding)
And yes, we all love
Teagan's photos,
but there's somebody here
tonight that loves them so much
that he outbid all
of us by a long shot
so that he could bring
them home with him.
And I think he'd like
to say a few words.
So, Mr. Garrett,
come on up here!
Thank you, Charlotte,
and thank you, everyone.
Teagan, you have
certainly fulfilled
your side of our agreement,
and now, I will fulfill mine.
I spoke to the folks at
the community center,
and they gave me a list of all
the repairs that they need.
I think that this...
should more than cover it.
Thank you, Mr. Garrett.
Of course.
Okay. Thank you
again, everybody, for coming,
and please, go have some fun!
And Merry Christmas!
- Merry Christmas!
- Merry Christmas, everyone!
(speaking indistinctly)
- Congratulations.
- Thank you.
Okay. Bye-bye.

(Noah chuckling)
What's this?
Merry Christmas.
Shouldn't this be under
the Christmas tree?
I wanted to give it
to you today.
- Okay.
- Open it, Dad.

Do you like it?
Noah: It's the best present
I've ever received.
Thank you, sweetie.
Did you ask her yet?
Would you like to join us for
Christmas dinner tomorrow?
I would love to.
Great. Charlotte
will be there, too.
Well, come on.
I want to show everyone
this amazing gift
my amazing daughter got me.
(Noah chuckling)
Hey, um, you know,
the forecast for Christmas Day
is for perfect weather.
Perfect for what?

Oh, yeah!
I want to come back
here every Christmas.
Yeah. We will.
