Scott Calvin is a divorced father and advertising executive in Lakeside, Illinois with a young son, Charlie. On Christmas Eve, Charlie comes over to spend the night with Scott before going back to his mother's for Christmas Day. Scott attempts to assure Charlie of Santa Claus' existence, while in full disbelief himself. That night, they are awakened by a clatter on the roof. Going outside to see what's a matter, Scott can see someone on the roof. He yells at the trespasser, which causes the man to lose his balance and falls off the roof. The trespasser appears to be Santa Claus.
Upon his death he magically disappears, but his suit remains. They find a business card in a pocket stating that if something should happen to him, someone should put on the suit, and the reindeer will know what to do. They find a sleigh and eight reindeer perched atop the house. Scott puts on the Santa suit to please Charlie, and begins delivering toys from rooftop to rooftop.
Their final stop is the North Pole. The head elf, Bernard, shows him a tiny inscription on the card which says that, upon the disappearance of the previous occupant, whoever wears the suit assumes the identity of Santa Claus and all the responsibilities that go with it. This is the "Santa Clause", as stated by Bernard: "You put on the suit and you're the big guy!" He also gives Charlie a snow globe as a gift. He then tells Scott that he only has eleven months, until the next Thanksgiving to get his affairs in order before becoming Santa Claus full time, which he tries to refuse. Charlie and Scott spend the night at the factory. The next morning they awake back in Scott's home, where the only indication of their previous night's adventure is Scott's new silk pajamas with "SC" monogrammed on them. Scott dismisses it all as a dream.
Soon, however, Scott starts gaining weight and his boss Mr. Whittle likens him to the Pillsbury Doughboy and he interjects a presentation on the company's new toy by complaining about Santa not being represented with his sleigh. He develops a ravenous taste for Christmas treats, like Christmas cookies and hot cocoa. He grows a long white beard, and shaving it off has no effect as it re-grows instantly. His hair whitens, despite all attempts to dye it. He somehow knows who has been "naughty" and "nice". Children (who somehow know he is Santa despite Scott not dressing like Santa) approach him with gift requests. Scott's rapid transformation worries his ex-wife Laura and her new husband, psychiatrist Dr. Neil Miller, who tries to terminate his visitation rights to Charlie. They question Scott's mental stability, and believe that Scott's changes are attempts at getting his son to like him.
Eventually, Scott's visitation rights to Charlie are taken away. Disheartened, Scott begins to lose some of his certainty about his job as Santa. While visiting Charlie on Thanksgiving, Charlie's insistence that Scott is Santa reawakens Scott's magic and he, with Bernard's help, whisks Charlie away to the North Pole. Laura and Neil, who think Scott has kidnapped Charlie against his will, call the Police, who start a massive investigation.
Meanwhile, at the North Pole, Charlie helps Scott and the head elves perfect a new sled and communication devices. Charlie calls his mother, but this only reinforces their belief that he is being held against his will. Eventually, Scott, as Santa Claus, goes on with his Christmas Eve trip, but is arrested while delivering presents to his son's home, and is accused of kidnapping Charlie. A team of rescue elves, the ELFS, free Scott from jail by tying up the front desk guard and using tinsel to break through the bars (which Scott is very impressed by). The ELFS then fly Scott and Charlie home to his mother and stepfather, to whom Scott/Santa gives the presents they always wanted since childhood but never got: Laura gets a vintage Mystery Date game and Neil gets an Oscar Mayer Wienie Whistle. (It was because they did not get these presents that they became convinced Santa did not exist.)
Laura, realizing finally that Scott really is the new Santa, tosses the custody papers into the fireplace and welcomes Scott to visit Charlie any time that he wants. Bernard tells Charlie that the snow globe is magical. Anytime he wants his father to visit, all he has to do is shake it. After ten minutes, he shakes it and Scott comes back, says he was off to Cleveland, and takes Charlie with him to deliver the rest of the presents.
In my opinion this is funny
