I read this book when it first came out 15 years ago and it was nice to read again during the busyness of is like short essays that you can read one, put down, and come back to a few days later without needing to remember what you've been reading. A cute, funny compilations of a life time of stories of dealing with, hoping for, and acting like Santa Claus over the years.

A friend gave this to me for Christmas. I figured if I read it in August it would cool me off. Coupled with reading and tiger's blood sno cone, it wasn't bad.
This was fun for me because I had his wife as my professor in college. I knew both of them and it was an interesting read.
He writes well, and he had some fun thoughts on gool ol' Santa:
The fact is, Santa stays with us. He spans our transitions from childhood to adulthood. He symbolizes the kindly adult male that men wish they could be an

The best thing about this book is knowing Tom and Louise Plummer a bit (I had a memoir class from them--completely awesome class, btw). Because of that, I could totally see them doing the things that happen in these little vignettes about Christmas.

The other best thing was all the "letters to Santa" from various supposed people; I particularly enjoyed the one about the person whose alarm clock didn't work right (and all the things the person did to try to wake up--I could definitely relate).

I just like Tom Plummer. I am biased. I love his book Eating Chocolates and Dancing in the Kitchen. This little book is a collection of funny essays about his antics playing Santa over the years. Sprinkled throughout are letters to Santa detailing Christmas wishes from adults and children--some sweet, some poignant. It's an entertaining Christmas read for adults.

Tom Plummer loves Christmas, and he loves playing Santa Claus. This fun little book is chock full of his observations on both. He's had people both naughty and nice sit on his knee, and the season has brought out the naughtiness and niceness in himself as well. In between the essays are letters to Santa from various people of all ages. A sweet and jolly Christmas read!

A cute Christmas book. He talks about dressing up as Santa. The best part of the book is the different Santa letters that people have written. Those letters brough tears to my eyes and laughter to my soul.
A collection of the author's Christmas memories, experiences as one of Santa's helpers, and letters to Santa written by adults of all ages--some funny, some tender.

I think I mostly liked this book because I had the author as a professor in college and loved his classes, but the humor is great.
