If you shake up this first holiday snow globe, you'll find snow falling inside a bedroom, where a man is getting dressed. He's putting on pants that are about 30 sizes too big – then a red coat, a red hat, and a beard. He's Santa Claus. And, at first, being Santa is just a job for him. Until it becomes something more like a way of life.
Christopher McCabe's career has taken him from the grill at Jack-in-the-Box to the English faculty at Pasadena City College. He is now a writer based in Los Angeles.
