Santa is a Jedi. Most people who are the least bit honest, will admit that they didn't know that. That thought probably never popped, not even once, into their sugarplum-dreaming heads. The average person believed that he was just the holly, jolly, fat, old elf who delivered presents on his sleigh with flying reindeer. But St. Nick was much more than what he seemed.
Being a seasoned member of the ancient order of the Jedi, Santa had detected a disturbance in 'the Force.' Narrowing it down by process of elimination, he had come to the conclusion that it was his most trusted advisor and confidant: Rudolph the red nose reindeer! That's why he had been keeping such a close eye on him and had even promoted him to lead reindeer: keep your friends close and your enemies even closer! A reindeer who didn't want to play any reindeer games and who had a glowing red nose to boot: unnatural! Rudolph was a Sith Lord! Luckily for Santa, he knew how to deal with their insidious type of evil.
Unfortunately for Santa, reindeer were big, fast and strong. Being a Sith Lord would only multiply his powers tenfold. But Santa knew his reindeer and they had one big disadvantage: their antlers! He merely had to drive them with aggressive light saber blows into the branches of a tree, his antlers would become entangled and then he would be at Santa's mercy.
But now who would drive his sleigh tonight?
