Who comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve to bring presents to good little bunnies? Santa Claus, that's who! And Max wants to stay up and see him. Max's bossy, older sister Ruby doesn't want him to stay awake, but, as always, irrepressible Max has other ideas. He sneaks downstairs to wait for Santa...with unexpected results!
