What a nice and cute Christmas story! I really like the little Santa who does not need to speak a word, but you can understand him easily. The music is excellent. I`m looking forward to present it to my students. I`m sure they`ll enjoy the funny story. Thank you very much for brightening this dark December afternoon.
