Kris and Kraig Kringle are brothers living in the North Compound at the North Pole.  Kris (a.k.a. Santa) and Kraig (a.k.a. Krampus) have worked well together for centuries, delivering presents and coals to naughty and nice people.  One day, two young elves, Santi and Perch, start to argue over bringing back "whacking sticks".  The two are punished for constantly arguing and are given a "time out" together, but Santa leaves the Naughty and Nice list with them by accident.  The two elves argue again and accidentally tear up the Naughty and Nice list.  Panicking, Santi and Perch join together to "borrow" Santa's sleigh to rectify the dire situation so Christmas won't be ruined.
