Sometimes young children get caught up in the excitement of a holiday without realizing what the holiday in question is for or what it means. For many Christmas is about giving and receiving presents, eating lots of rich foods, and decorating the house. We forget sometimes that Christmas is also the birthday celebration of Jesus Christ and that we remember him on this special day. It is also the day when we look forward to a visit from St. Nicholas – a saint whom many call Santa Claus or Father Christmas.

This simple photograph filled little book will help children to understand why we celebrate this holiday and why we have the many Christmas traditions which make this a very special time of year for millions of people all over the world.

This is one of the titles in the “My First Holidays” Series
