What's in His Bag?

Around the holidays, Kris Kringle is always on the go. So it comes as no surprise, that, come January, the North Pole-based wish granter likes to pack a sack and sleigh ride off to a tropical beach for a little R&R with his other half, Mrs. Claus. There, you'll find Kris playing fetch on the shore with his four-legged best friend, Rudolph. But not to worry—Kris won't let a little exercise compromise his pleasantly plump physique: His favorite beachside treat is a pack of Snowballs snack cakes and an ice-cold Coke in a glass bottle.
