Kris Kringle è all'apparenza un distinto signore di mezza età che vive a New York. Natale si avvicina e il grande magazzino "Cole's", che attraversa una brutta crisi finanziaria, ha puntato sulle vendite natalizie tutte le sue risorse, nella speranza di risollevarsi dalla crisi e non dover vendere il suo marchio al concorrente "Shopper's Express". Inaspettatamente proprio Kringle si rivela il perfetto asso nella manica: l'uomo, infatti, è convinto di essere Babbo Natale e riesce a interpretare il ruolo con tale convinzione da essere assunto e attirare nel negozio schiere di clienti entusiasti. L'assoluta dedizione al personaggio affascina la piccola Susan, che ha saputo da sua madre Dorey (uno dei manager di Cole) che Babbo Natale non esiste. Ai dubbi della bambina e al razionalismo di sua madre, si affianca infine la voglia di credere che anima l'avvocato Bryan Bedford, innamorato della stessa Dorey. Inoltre la fortuna che sta accompagnando Cole suscita le invidie di Shopper's Express, che per questo decide di screditare Kringle. Una sera, infatti, l'uomo viene provocato e costretto a reagire, fino a venire arrestato. Il suo dichiararsi Babbo Natale non aiuta lo sventurato benefattore, che viene anzi rinchiuso in manicomio per insanità mentale. Pare che sia la fine per il Santa Claus newyorkese, ma la gente della città è con lui e Bedford si incarica di difenderlo in tribunale per dimostrare il valore del credere anche agli occhi di chi, come Dorey, ha rinunciato a farlo e di chi, come Susan, vuole invece trovare una ragione per poterlo fare. La causa viene vinta e infine Susan ottiene anche il regalo che aveva chiesto: Dorey e Bryan si sposano formando la sua nuova famiglia
