When Christmas rolled around again after his father's death, Jack Sanderson realized he was not looking forward to the holiday. It seemed to Jack that Christmas had become a burden. He had only two choices, avoid it entirely or dive into the deepest part of the Christmas pool. Jack would become Santa Claus and do as many of the things Santa is asked to do as possible. For the documentary "Becoming Santa", director Jeff Myers followed Jack on his journey to become Santa which entailed getting a custom Santa suit from Adele Saidy of 'Adele's of Hollywood', attending the 'American Events Santa School' taught by Susen Mesco in Denver, Colorado and then Santa jobs. Wrapped around Jack's journey into Christmas, like the red stripe around a candy cane, are interviews with professional Santas, Santa aficionados and historians who provide the fascinating little known history of Santa Claus in America and how the Civil War helped to shape the Christmas holiday as we know it today.
