An epic tale of Christmisunderstanding.
A dark, Seussian roller-coaster, where the purpose of ‘giving coal’ is re-explained.
“Whats with the coal?” everyone has been asking.
It seems the coal Santa has been giving naughty kids is being completely misinterpreted, How is this possible? Not one of the kids is getting the intended message...
"...The coal it seems goes right into the trash or fire and that is that..."
- Holly Jolly Times
Sometimes parents are the culprits! Can you imagine? Finding a dark, purposeful lump of carbon and thinking it unfair, or too harsh, or worst of all: a mistake?! "Come on!" Santa thinks, "I know 6 million kids by name!".
As his ulcer grows and productivity declines, Santa realizes things have got to change...
