Santa baby…

Well, not really. Here’s a little book about how Saint Nicholas became Santa Claus...that’s kind of what it is about.

For me, someone who did not grow up among the stories of the saints who came before us, this was a fascinating book about what we know about Saint Nicholas the men (yes, there are two), and the many ways that the legend has become part of the warp and woof of our lives.  It was a very pleasant read — certainly made me feel like i was doing something scholarly while you are really just warming up to the season.  Give it read; it might change the way you talk to your children when you have to face that daunting question, but is Santa Claus real?
