When Fred Clausâ€™ little brother was born, he promised to be the best big brother he could be. But that began to prove difficult, as little Nicholas was always showing him up. Nicholas was always giving and jolly. Their mother constantly said to Fred, â€œWhy canâ€™t you be more like your brother?â€ So as time went on, Fred grew more bitter towards Nicholas and the rest of his family. Though, when Fred gets into trouble, he calls his brother to help him out. But Nicholas (Santa) gives an ultimatum. He has to come work at the North Pole for a few days. But, unbeknownst to Fred, an inspector has come to the North Pole too. And he has the power to shut down Santa and Christmas altogether.
