I wrote this story for parents like me who want to share the fun of Santa while making Christmas completely about Jesus. As I’ve said to my own children time and again,
“I don’t know much about Santa; all I know is that he loves Jesus so much that he wants to give presents to kids on His birthday.”
(Please note that this isn’t meant to be historically accurate; it’s just a story.
But there’s plenty of truth in it for me.)
In the weeks following Christ’s birth, the news about the baby King began to spread. The shepherds told everyone they knew, and so others began to visit the newborn babe. They added their own stories to the story of the shepherds, telling all of their neighbors, friends, and acquaintances.
Soon the Good News had spread far and wide and even up into the North Country, where it met the ears of a kind man named Nicholas. Nicholas went home to his wife and told her of the baby who had his own star.
