Santa’s Greatest Gift

By Rebecca Gittrich Whitecotton

Rumors are flying that Santa is not real, and that he takes away from the true meaning of Christmas. In Santa’s Greatest Gift, Santa responds to these accusations, revealing his true identity and shedding light on the true identity of every soul on earth.

This reassuring letter from Santa guides the child in all of us through the rumors of falsehood to the amazing discovery that Santa is real and living as the Giving Spirit in everyone who plays the role of Santa. But Santa’s greatest gift is the knowledge that the Spirit of God that lived and was made perfect in Jesus is also alive inside each person as the Christ Spirit. The honoring of the Christ Child in each girl and boy is, in fact, the reason that Santa has been bringing gifts each year, just as the wise men brought gifts for the Christ Child on that first Christmas day.

It is Santa’s hope that the peace of Christmas will be found through the recognition of the Giving Spirit and the Christ Spirit inside ourselves and everyone we meet.

I really enjoyed this book. I could not have put the giving spirit in better words. I can’t wait to share this with kids when they get older. Great explanation of Santa Claus!!!
