Santa ClaudiaEven Santa can fall in love
Christmas is coming, and single mom Claudia won't be able to afford the language course her oldest boy wishes for unless she takes an extra job. As fate would have it, she ends up as a department-store Santa in the very store she works at part-time.
Everyone there is on edge since the son of the store's American owners, Michael Mansfield, has flown in to check up on things. Michael falls in love with Claudia, but even though she's interested, she's also fiercely independent and suspects that he's patronizing her.
It's not until he sends Claudia's alias - she in her Santa Claus costume - to cheer up his little daughter Alison in the hospital that Claudia realizes how unfair she's been towards him: Michael is still mourning his wife, who died in a car accident that left Alison seriously injured. In the true spirit of Christmas, Claudia arranges a wonderful surprise that brings cheer to Alison's heart - and fulfills Michael's greatest wish.
