Added DiffLines:

* ATwinkleInTheSky: Happens when Santa and his reindeer zip out of Jeremy Creek's neighborhood after not stopping at his house, accompanied by an {{Animesque}} shining sound.


* GoodCannotComprehendEvil: Santa assumes the name Jeremy Creek must refer to a place because certainly no kid could be that greedy.

What Jeremy doesn't realize, though, is that when Santa received his letter, he assumed that, since no kid could possibly want so much stuff, that Jeremy Creek was in fact the name of a place. And it ''was'' - to be more exact, it was the name of a swamp town that Santa had never before visited (hence the title). Thus, he had in fact brought the toys Jeremy wanted to the kids who live in the swamp town. When Jeremy finds out about this through a TV report on Christmas Day, he is at first outraged by this. But upon hearing how much the kids of the swamp town are willing to thank whoever wrote to Santa about them, it [[DefrostingIceQueen makes him feel better than any gift ever could]]. Following this CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, the now-nicer Jeremy shares his toys with the rest of the kids in his neighborhood and even joins Santa on his annual gift-giving journey every year ([[GrowingUpSucks until he eventually outgrows his seat in the sleigh]]).
