How fully do we appreciate the superhuman efforts Santa makes every year just to get his job done? Is he overeating because of the stress? Has he managed to halt yet another elf labor strike? How does Mrs. Claus soothe her overachieving husband? Will Santa ever retire? Find out the answers to these and many other questions in this candid journal of a year in Santa's life.
