Unlike Kronk, cynical Kuzco doesn't believe in Papa Santos, the Santa Claus equivalent in Giftmas, the local version of Christmas. Yzma plans to use this against Kuzco. Instead, the boys stumble onto the real papa Santos' ice palace. He tells them Kuzco's wish to become emperor can only be granted if he stops being naughty and undoes his malice in the 48 hours before Giftmas. Hearing so from Kronk, Yzma decides to destroy Papa by shooting down his llama-rickshaw. Only Kuzko can save Giftmas.
