The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus

“Nothing bad lasts forever”

Many people think they know the story of Santa Claus. But how many remember the real story?

How many of you know of Claus’s childhood adventures in the magical Forest of Burzee with the cheeky Knooks and Ryls? Do you remember how he came to the Laughing Valley to live and bring happiness to humanity? And how a chance meeting on the streets of the Emerald City set him on a path of making toys and bringing joy to children?

And surely remember how Claus attracted the attention of the wicked Awgwas, determined to drain the goodness of all mortals. And how it all led to the most terrible war beteween the ultimate powers of evil and good. Where the happiness of humanity hung in the balance.

You don’t? Then settle in, as we tell you a story…
