SANTA'S BIG RED SACK 8th straight year! SANTA'S BIG RED SACK has become an annual tradition for those desperately seeking some non-traditional holiday entertainment.

While the subjects may sound familiar and benign – Santa's reindeer, Christmas carols, bedtime stories, the Whos in Whoville, gift exchanges and good will – it is undoubtedly "The holiday show you shouldn't take your kids to."
