Author's Summary: A small alien is lost in a holiday mall...Santa - or Three - to the rescue. A light Christmastide tale with a sprinkle of peppermint and fluff.
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant, Mike Yates, Sergeant Benton, The Doctor (3rd)
Recced because: July is the perfect time to read Christmas fic. This one mixes up some sweet scenes with Jo and the Third Doctor and the alien, along with some funny scenes as the Doctor plays Santa. It still manages to be just the sort of thing UNIT would get mixed up in as well.
A tall man in red, all trimmed in white fur was suddenly beside her. She startled as she looked up; before he said anything she recognized the blue eyes twinkling at her from the midst of the false beard.
"Ho ho, Jo," he smiled. "I suppose I'm 'Santa' to you for the moment. This white hair of mine apparently comes in handy this time of year, or so Sergeant Benton has informed me."
"Except for the beard," she said, unable to resist reaching up to poke at it. "I thought you were just going to watch. Doesn't it bother you?"
"Only when someone pokes it."
