Marmel, Santa’s Head Labeling Elf, worries that it might be. He’s worried because no one is on Santa’s Naughty List anymore, and to Marmel there can be no Christmas without a Naughty List. That’s why he’s so glad to learn about Amanda Krumwerth and her family, who seem to have everything they could want except time for each other.
As Marmel tells Santa, “All of them are absolutely, irredeemably, hopelessly naughty and they deserve nothing but coal in their Christmas stockings!”
So why is Santa sending Marmel on an obviously hopeless mission to get the Krumwerths off the Naughty List? South Pole Santa: Back to Christmas tells the story of how Santa and his “polar opposite” try to bring the Krumwerths together again. But fixing this problem won’t be easy, and the Krumwerths may not be the only ones Santa is trying to help.
