(IBList user synopsis):
A girl lies in bed listening to the striking of the clocks in the town and notices that they all strike at different times. She is concerned by this, because if the clocks are all different, how will people know when Christmas really begins? She decides to set out to solve the problem. But as she goes about the town, asking people to change their clocks to agree, she discovers that the problem is not as simple as she thought.
