What in the world is Santa Claus doing in Christmas? Wasn't this Christ's birthday we are supposed to be celebrating?!

Merry Christmas!

What do those two words mean to you? Do they paint wonderful scenes out of Currier and Ives paintings? Snow on the ground with warmly dressed people sitting in horse drawn sleigh, riding through beautiful country neighborhoods as though they haven’t a care in the world. We know they are singing Christmas carols and must be on their way to a party to drink warm apple cider and eat home baked goodies!

Do you perhaps think of the jolly old white haired, bearded gentleman who brings gifts in a huge black bag to all the children all around the world? He’s dressed in red clothes with a big black belt and black high top boots. His mode of transportation is a magical sleigh and eight tiny reindeer. Of course there is also a larger reindeer with a very red nose (matches Santa’s clothes!).

Or do you instead, recall a very young lady riding on a donkey, her husband close beside leading the animal toward a stable. The stable wasn’t to be a resting place for the donkey but a place where the lady would lie down while her baby enters this world, looking not at all like a king. He is just a tiny baby boy who will need a mommy and daddy to love and care for him until he becomes of age.

Do you see the bright star in the northern sky, guiding the shepherds to the place where the baby is born?
When I was a little girl Santa didn’t come to my house. Mother always said she wouldn’t teach us there was a Santa because we were not well off financially and she didn’t want us to be confused as to why he would give other children nicer gifts than what we received. I always appreciated any gift I received, though I really did wish for a bicycle. I wouldn’t have cared who gave it to me!

Great book! I can hardly wait for my grandbaby to be old enough for me to read it to her. In the mean time, I will just enjoy it myself!
