So you're just gonna let a little reality stop you, is that it? Boys, let me tell you something. The only way I have managed to get through my crappy life with any shred of self-worth is by living in denial! If I was gonna let myself get beaten by failure, I would've quit after one kid! You just gotta keep holding out for a miracle! And if a miracle isn't gonna come at Christmas, then when is it gonna come?!
'Twas the city of Townsville, and all through the town, all the townsfolk are stirring as snow is falling down. It's bitter and freezing in the dead of December, but there's reason for joy if you can remember. For it's this time of year that our story unfolds, when our hearts are the warmest despite all the cold. Yes, it is Christmas, just two days before, and all through the town none can wait anymore for the timely arrival of one certain fat guy who brings us all goodies from out of the sky. Full of anticipation are these urban folks, none more-so than the students at old Pokey Oaks.
