Max is determined to stay up at night to see Santa Claus. But Ruby tells him that nobody ever sees Santa Claus. But, Max sneaks downstairs and waits for Santa for a long time. When Santa comes down the chimney into the living room, he puts his hat over Max's eyes and tells him not to look. Max asks Santa questions and he tells Max that nobody is supposed to see him and that everybody is supposed to be in bed asleep. Max peaks at Santa and he tells Max that it's time for him to go away and for Max to go to sleep and covers Max's eyes before going up the chimney. Ruby then comes downstairs and asks Max what happened and feels his blanket all lumpy. Presents fall out and Max says "Because" and smiles.
