Can you imagine what would happen if Santa forgot to take his GPS with him on Christmas Eve and got lost delivering the presents? In this silly look at Santa Claus in a number of worst-case scenarios, kids and parents alike will laugh out loud at the million and one little things that could go wrong, from Santa having to pull his sleigh himself because the reindeer are tired, or getting the presents mixed up so you accidentally end up with Grandma’s new hat instead of the toy you wanted. While not everything may always go as planned, one thing is for sure—Christmas magic will always prevail. Even if Santa loses his suspenders or stops to take a selfie with his reindeer, kids know you can always count on him because Santa will never forget where you live—just make sure you stay on the nice list this year!!
