When TV producer Bobbo Butler tries to save his ailing TV station, FUN-TV, with an American Idol -inspired talent contest intended to find the real Santa, the man himself—fresh from Guinn's The Autobiography of Santa Claus and How Mrs. Claus Saved Christmas —throws his hat into the ring. Guinn's clever premise draws on the historical roots of the commercialization of Christmas, and his Santa, who narrates, is sanguine when faced with the prospect of facing off against street corner Santas.
