Regular price $2.00 Sale price
Why does Santa come to our house on Jesus' birthday? This question from Claire Bateman's young son became the inspiration for "How Christmas Began". We all know the miraculous story of Jesus' birth and we also know about St. Nicholas, the patron saint of Christmas, and his generous trips around the world delivering gifts. But how do these stories connect? Bateman, certain she is not the first parent forced to explain the relationship between reindeer and redeemer, is equally certain she is not the first adult searching for the real meaning of Christmas. By combining these two beloved traditions her book establishes a refreshing explanation for the Christmas we know today. This sweet tale depicts Jesus and Santa as boyhood friends who are looking for all the people who live with the light of Jesus inside of them. When Santa shows Jesus how many people live with His "special glow" in their hearts, the stage is set. Read how the two boys develop plans for the biggest birthday party in the world and discover how Christmas really began.
