A little girl and her family are getting ready to go on vacation . . . or at least they are trying to. In the effort to pack everything that will be needed, there's bound to be something overlooked, and what that is provides a funny ending to this meter-perfect "twist" on Clement Moore's classic.

An anxious family is going on a summer vacation, so they excitedly pack up their suit cases and put them in the car. After dinner, they take out a picture album to remind themselves of past vacations. They laugh and bond over the memories they captured. Bright and early in the morning, they leave to go on vacation and as soon as they leave, the boy asks, ¿Are there yet¿.
