Bugaboo Christmas in July Day 2

The movie, Jingle All the Way, brings back 30+ year old memories of getting up super early one Sunday, sneaking out of the house, standing in a crowd at the mall, and making a mad dash for the only Transformer on the shelf, bringing my treasured purchase home, hiding it in the azalea bushes and then walking in the house with the newspaper in hand just like any normal day.  
Santa Claus has a very difficult job!
He definitely deserves center stage on today's card, 
holding that elusive present.
Here's the sketch provided for today's challenge:
