Storyline

For the Christmas holidays, Buck Seger has been tasked with getting some reindeer from a game farm for the San Ernesto California Zoo. Sandy Brooks, an animal keeper at the zoo, is a lonely woman who uses the animals as a surrogate for human affection. Despite this, she detests Buck, who is continually pestering her to go out with him. In his task for the zoo, Buck, indulging his big game hunting passion, decides to get one of the reindeer from the wild instead. He inadvertently captures Buddy, one of Santa's new reindeer. Santa not only has come to San Ernesto to rescue Buddy, but also to teach Buddy to fly, all before Christmas Day. Santa can travel between the North Pole and any location in the world via mirrors. While in San Ernesto, Santa names himself Nick Snowden. To get Buddy back, Nick figures he has to get close to Sandy, a move that does not sit well with Buck. Nick manages to move into the boarding house where Sandy lives. Getting Buddy back is more difficult than Nick ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Nick Snowden: Once upon a time, in a far and distant land, there lived a mean and cruel lord. And, one Christmas, this mean and cruel lord was throwing a lavish feast, for Kings and Queens. When, lo and behold, a poor beggar was caught picking scraps of food from his kitchen. Now this cruel lord was a miser, so, what did he do, but, he threw him out, into the cold winter night. But, what the cruel lord did not know, was that this was no ordinary beggar. This man was, actually, a very powerful wizard, and he ...

sigh...
16 September 2005 | by (Lalawood) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why "mandlk" would be concerned with how "secular," much less "TOO secular" this made-for-TV movie is, or whether or not it made "sure there was No religion in this movie" as, the entirety of the story of - and the origin of the story of - "Santa Claus" has nothing to do with religion, whether viewed secularly or otherwise, in any fashion. The legend of Santa Clause derived from Thomas Nast year end cartoons printed in New York in the 1820's, amplified by Coca- Cola (paint)advertisements dating as late as the 1930's.

The English colonists of what had been "New Amsterdam," now New York, had no legend that correlated with the Dutch "Sinter Klaas," wherein Sinter Klaas would visit all the good (Dutch) children, giving them gifts and whatnot. After the English had taken over New Amsterdam, they ended up evolving the Santa Claus legend (and boy... it's a long story) to please their children. The Santa Claus story we're all familiar with in the 21st-Century didn't fully gel until after the Great Depression of the 1930's and, especially, with the "Miracle on 34th Street" film.

I guarantee it had nothing, whatsoever, to do with religion, lack of religion or secularism... or NON-secularism... or even a Christian usurpation of some pagan yule tradition. It is basically a 19th- century urban legend that became evermore-convenient to present-for-commercialization for the benefit of whoever happened to sponsor the latest made-for-whatever-medium depiction of it.

I suggest you simply enjoy the movie for the 'warm-fuzzies' it contains... or not... "That choice is left up to you."
