What a wonderful Christmas experience. I'm something of a Christmas connoisseur - movies, songs, books, versions, from the very warped (like Bad Santa) to the disgustingly sweet (like some movies on "that" channel can get). I've studied St. Nicholas, even wrote and performed a short 1-act about him. I thought I had seen every angle there was.
This book is altogether different, captivating, inspiring, thought-provoking. I guarantee you've never contemplated the Christmas Story from this angle, let alone St. Nick's story. I couldn't put it down, about 4 hours straight through; good thing it was something of a lazy Saturday afternoon (after adding some Christmas lights to the back deck).
Just get it and read it. You can thank me later.
