    LOVED IT !!

    Santa Claus is Coming to Town aired last night on tv and I have to say this 38 year-old loved every minute. You will learn the whole story about Santa i.e. why he has to slide down chimneys, why kids stuff stockings, why he grew a beard, why he visits once a year etc. I felt I learned everything there is to know about Santa, even how he met his wife ! This is well worth owning.
