SCN Special Report: Just how big is Santa Claus anyway? It all depends on your point of view. If you catch sight of him just before he pops down a chimney, you might think him a tiny old elf indeed. That's because his patented "Clauscompressor" shrinks him down small enough to fit in the smallest chimnies.
