Saint Nicholas: The Real Story of the Christmas Legend

My family doesn’t observe Christmas the way many people do. We forego the elf – both the one on the shelf and the one who resides at the North Pole. Our¬†Christmas traditions and celebrations have always been centered around the birth of Christ which we have always found sufficient reason to celebrate. ¬†Saint Nicholas: the Real Story of the Christmas Legend by Julie Stiegemeyer is a wonderful book to read to young children about the real St. Nicholas. Granted, it is a fictionalized account, but in general it sticks to the most accepted and well-known facts about the kindhearted pastor from modern-day Turkey.

I encourage you to tell your children not only the story of Jesus – the real reason we celebrate – but also about the real man St. Nicholas who gave to others out of a heart dedicated to the Christ of Christmas.
