Based on writer/producer Mike Reiss' best-selling children's book, surrounds cranky deli owner Murray Weiner. He reluctantly fills in for Santa one Christmas after Santa is knocked out cold by a Jack-in-the-boxer's walloping punch. The suit doesn't fit, there's no way Murray will learn all of the reindeer names and he smells a bit like pickles. However, with the help of a pushy elf and an eager-to-believe young boy, Murray discovers that even though he may not fill Santa's suit, he's got more than enough heart to get the job done.
