    I honestly think that that banner sells this fanfic. It's just...perfect. I can almost hear a cheesy Christmas carol start playing in my mind as soon as the bright green banner reaches the screen. Perhaps Here Comes Santa Claus?

    Man, I love this. It's hilarious and heartwarming. Poor Giovanni lost his reputation, but at least he got to save Christmas forever and forever!

    At the sight of all this Giovanni’s face contorted itself into an expression of angry disbelief. The man in red, who by any measure came across as quite jolly, turned to Giovanni and started to laugh in archaic fashion. “Ho, ho, ho! You must be Giovanni! Just the man I wanted to see!”

    Giovanni did not react well to the stranger’s statement. “Get the f*ck out of my house!”
    This is the best part of the fic. Instant Christmas classic moment right here. And possibly the only correct reaction to seeing a fat laughing man suddenly arrive in your house through the chimney!

    I did notice another typo:
    “You’ve got be kidding me.”
    Missed the "to" between "got" and "be."

    This was an enjoyable read. Well worth the three-year wait!
