Child of Santa

The Main Character is the Child of Santa Claus

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
It's the Main Character who happens to be the child of Claus. Sometimes the kid has a bad relationship with his/her father A few examples I know of are:
  • Santa Baby
  • Arthur Christmas
  • Son of Santa: A Christmasy Carol
  • Fred Claus (okay, Santa's brother close enough)
  • And this one movie I saw once, never knew the name; but it was about the disenchanted son of Santa Claus who was a businessman and used the Nice/Naughty List to make business. At the end they reconciliate and save Christmas

    Why not writing the supertrope first, and then see if this is splitable?

    Supertrope: Normal man is the child of a holiday character with supernatural powers.

    ^ That presumes there are examples not involving Santa. None are coming to mind.

    Recent movie; Hop. Although that's not technically a human.... Would "child of a holiday incarnation" be loose enough? Fred Clause would still be playing with the trope.

    The TV Movie Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus features Steve Guttenberg as the son of the former Santa, who needs to get married (Santa Clause 2, anyone?) in order to take over the job.

    The Russian counterpart to Santa, Ded Moroz, actually has a granddaughter for a sidekick.

    Some examples from Wikipedia:
    • A short musical play of 1892 called Santa Claus' daughter (by Everett Elliott and F. W. Hardcastle). In this piece, the young Kitty Claus, who has known no one but her papa, asks him to find her a man.

    • In the book The Legend of Holly Claus (2006, by Brittney Ryan), Santa and Mrs. Claus enjoy a miraculous birth, but because of a terrible curse, the heart of their daughter is frozen.

    • In the film Once Upon a Christmas (2001), Kristin Claus (Kathy Ireland) opposes her sister Rudolfa who is try to ruin the spirit of Christmas.
    • In the film Annie Claus Is Coming To Town (2011), Santa's daughter (Maria Thayer) moves to California to find love and have her own career.
