Christmas Day in Fullerton, California 1961
Al Rivet, Sonny Yetto (Guertin) and Jim Laurent, all originally from upstate New York where the winter blows hard and cold, share a Christmas Day in California without shoveling snow and where the temperature is above is above 80 degrees Fahrenheit. They just cannot believe Harriet can walk barefooted on December 25th!!!
