The First Night Before Christmas grew out of a desire to tell the Christmas story in an accessible way. Thee hope was to allow families to share and enjoy the real story of Christmas while acknowledging that there was once an historical figure who also served Christ by giving to children selflessly. In our family tradition, we always told our children about Jesus and His birth and earthly ministry. We also explained the history of Santa Claus and included that aspect of the Christmas season as well. That seemed to accomplish the goal of introducing our children to the real meaning of Christmas without the trauma of pretending that the modern idea of Santa is real, only to suddenly be disabused of that fantasy when they hear that he is not. Understanding the Christian roots of the story and incorporating it with our family observances of the holiday made for a well-rounded season of celebration surrounding the birth of our wonderful Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is my hope that your family enjoys adding this to your tradition as well!
