The point is, Rudolph, Cornelius, and Herbie prove themselves to Santa, and Rudolph gets to guide Santa’s sleigh through the storm, and Herbie yoinks the teeth out of the nasty snow beast, and Santa basically becomes a Gorbachevian figure and implements glastnost and perestroika and whatever, maintaining the socialist structure while allowing for some degree of individuality. More or less.
I got lost in Xmas shopping and other nonsense, sorry. I obviously have no follow through. Anyway, have a merry merry.
