Presentation:               Santa’s Demise:  The Crash of a Sleigh and a Hero

Summary:  Hard times have hit the North Pole.  Once a demigod, Santa’s mystique has eroded as the children of the world look to TikTok heroes and YouTube sensations for happiness and joy.  The toy requests are down, Christmas spirit crumbled, and the elves are taking over.  Santa and his team turn from spreading happiness and cheer, to running afoul of the law in trying to profit from his criminal mischief. 



  1. Sleigh Crash with lots of issues:

    1. Santa has listed none of his elves on his policy as regular drivers and/or they use the sleigh without permission;

    2. Elf injury claims but the evidence of the medical treatment is garbage;

    3. Santa's bag of toys is stolen and he is inflating his contents claim.
