Oscar-winning animator Bruce Lyon and award-winning photographer/author David Goggin have written the next chapter in the myth of Santa Claus, the North Pole, and Christmas itself.

It’s a race against time and ultimately Santa has to choose: save his family or save Christmas. Which would you choose?
