Becoming Santa
DVD ($19.95)

In an attempt to kick his Christmas funk, Jack Sanderson immerses himself in the culture of the season's jolly, red-suited icon, eventually transforming himself into a "working" Santa Claus in this documentary that's already created miles of smiles on the film-festival circuit. Along the way, Jack attends Santa School, interviews professional Santas, experts and historians, explores the tangled roots and multi-faceted pedigree of the man behind the ho-ho-ho's, and ultimately discovers that the spirit of St. Nick is alive and well in many heartwarming ways.

Watch the author's transformation into Santa Claus.
