A philosophical but fun look at the meanings of Christmas myths and rituals, from carving the turkey to why Santa wears red. Picture the scene: Aunt Gertrude has just given you the most appalling Christmas tie, complete with snow-flecked kittens in a bowler hat. Do you smile, nod, and confine it to the bottom drawer? Or do you tell the truth and spare yourself future ties from hell? Kant would say that we must, at all costs, tell the truth - whilst Mill would insist that we should think of the consequences. THE XMAS FILES is a philosophical meander though the myths and rituals of Christmas today, asking such important questions as does Santa exist? What's wrong with Christmas kitsch? Is it all just a commercial racket? What was Augustine's attitude to 'peace on earth'? And what would David Hume have to say about the virgin birth? For underneath all the festive fun, the way we celebrate Christmas does raise serious questions about the beliefs that sustain us, and the ways in which we still value ritual and tradition as a means of coming together.

The Christmas Files: Operation Snowstorm is a hugely entertaining comedy thriller that shows us Santa and his toymaking operation as we've never seen them before. The story centres around ruthless billionaire Luther Averus's plot to get rid of Santa and claim Christmas for himself. To further his evil ends he recruits a young elf and former thief called Genk Relbeck. Genk at first goes along with the plan but rebels when he realises the extent of Averus's wicked intentions. The action flits furiously back and forth between New York and the North Pole as Genk races against time to save the day. In the middle of it all is Santa, struggling to hold on to the spirit of Christmas as he faces the pressures of the modern world and a pushy marketing director who wants him to hit the chat show circuit.
