The True Meaning of Christmas

Children and grown-ups alike will revel in the holiday magic as Santa recalls his favorite memories of the Feast of Light. Cuddle in close and listen to glowing tales of Christmas spirit and the gifts of kindness that money can’t buy.

Filled with magical, star-dusted anecdotes and Santa's fond memories, this charming book is a reminder of the deeper meaning of Christmas. Santa reflects on Clement Clarke Moore's 'Twas the Night Before Christmas and the story of the Grinch, gives a loving introduction to Mrs. Claus, and tells of the first crèche set up by St. Francis of Assisi, along with sharing other delightful tales that radiate the spirit of wonder and kindness.

"Please keep in mind that the most important things in life aren't things at all . . . they are things like friendship, and affection, and joy, and the ability to get along peacefully in the world even when you are not inclined to feel peaceful at all. I bring these gifts, too, especially if you're looking for them."
