I finally know how Neil Diamond felt. I've been shouting at my chair for hours now and it won't even do me the courtesy of acknowledging me.

[edit]

Synopsis: Santa doesn't feel too hot and he decides to take a vacation, since it looks like people don't believe in him that much anyway.


Reaction: It plays out well enough. A little predictable in a few points, but actually pretty nice.
