I ran across an interesting book that has been published by a Holy Cross priest at Notre Dame which traces the history of St. Nick. Seems like a nice way to share the real story of “Santa Claus” with a lot of your young children. “Santa” has become so secular the past several decades, that this book might help parents to bring back the “Catholic stories” of the real “Santa Claus”. Here’s the website discussing the book. I haven’t read it myself, but it does sound interesting.
Another great way to show your children St. Nicholas is to get the CCC video on St. Nicholas…that’s the main way I learned about him growing up and LOVED this movie!
