How do you control your greed, still get what you want, and spread the cheer? Get ready. Santa's almost here!

Ten-year-old Alec Greven is the boy to turn to for advice about the jolly guy in the red suit. He knows it's easy to go wild when Santa is on his way and explains how to avoid Santa-trouble. But there's more to Christmas than want, want, want, and Alec reminds us of the greater meaning—giving to others and spreading joy!


  • There is a 99.999999999% chance that you will never catch Santa. My advice is: Don't risk it!
  • Don't whine now—whine later. December 26 is National Whiners' Day.
  • You can be 100 and still believe.
