Secrets:  For year 2000, Santa has adopted a speedier mode of transport. His motorcycle's license plate reads "HK4" in homage to the four Harmony Kingdom holiday Santas of years past. In order to comply with federal regulations he flies with a black box, which is found under the handlebars. The inscription "FS1E" is the name of Peter's first moped, a Yamaha FS1E, affectionately known as "Fizzy." "MG" stands for Moto Guzzi, Noel Wiggins' motorbike of choice. Mad Murphy checks all the tags on the gifts, looking for his present, but all he finds is one for "LY" - Lisa Yashon - co-owner of Harmony Kingdom. The "TY" tag stands for Thye Gn, proprietor of Cellini Fine Gifts, whom Peter met whilst in Portland, Oregon, during the spring of 1999 when he began thinking of the 2000 Santa. The Version 1 interior contains two cuddling petty teddies. Several mice have been added to the exterior and interior of Version Infinity.
