Christmas morning, Gloria's mama has been called in to work at the hotel. She brings Gloria with her and Gloria is amazed by the lobby, the decorated tree, the spread of food in the banquet hall. But her mother sets Gloria in the kitchen to wait until her shift is over and they can go to Nana's to celebrate. When Gloria ventures out of the kitchen she meets a rich little girl who gives her her stuffed dog. Suddenly Gloria isn't happy about Christmas or about her mother having to work and her father away picking oranges. A quiet story that convincingly conveys the frustration Gloria feels about her "have-not" lifestyle but with Nana and Mama's help she sees how very rich her own life is.
