Santa Takes A Holiday! is really quite an adventure, though it isn't all fun and games. Santa must face adversity, which at first he does not want to...he must cope with real life issues and find inspiration in a modern world full of ever changing technology...to do so he re-invents himself so to speak with the help of new friends and old friends. I think you'll walk away feeling great by the end and I hope, you'll feel inspired too. I hope my story will truly bring joy to every reader's heart.
