Need help Finding a Christmas Movie

I think it was a made for tv christmas movie back in the mid 80's? It was about a family, they lived near the north pole. Well the father worked for a Oil Drilling company, and they were going to blow up/drill Santa Clause and the north pole, and the Kid/mom goes to the north pole, to try and save Santa or what not.

Anyone have any clue what the name of this movie is?

It may be either 'The Night The Reindeer Died' (1988) or 'The Night They Saved Christmas' (1984). I forget which.

Charlie is right. It's The Night They Saved Christmas starring Jaclyn Smith. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087797/
