It was a sense of dry laughter at the New York Board Meeting that caused Mary Shreve to ponder on the news which caused her to shift uncomfortably in her expensive black leather chair; her long, slender legs were covered in black stockings, as snow fell in the city. She gazed at Mister Davies, the Irish-American owner of ​Christmas Town​, a grand, magical, place in the city that never sleeps; a magical world which evoked laughter, humour, and child like innocence; a place which filled everyone with pleasure at the way Santa Claus, the elves, and everyone who celebrated Christmas every year. "I'm sure you'd be involved in the annual charity cause, Mary", he stated. "No", she said. She shook her head. "No. ​You're sure! All of us shall be able to...", he faulted. "No; no. I have no time for Christmas". And she shook her head, as she waited for Mister Davies to stop speaking.
