If you're looking for yuletides, roasting chestnuts, or plum pudding—this holiday story may not be for you—and that's OK. If you're looking to teach modern day children how to become better adults, mixed with real history, people, and events—you'll love this adventure. Keep reading...
Twenty years ago, my three kids had tons of questions about Santa— the same questions which have existed for generations. That's when I made up a bedtime story— one my children would always remember. Why read a book about Rudolph or Frosty when I could educate my little ones at the same time? My desire was to use this famous holiday man and teach while I had their attention, maybe something fun my kids could tell their children. In the beginning, our little Christmas story was simple and sweet, but as time went by it became historically complete.
Our December tale turned into a year-round project. I did research in libraries, examined microfilm, and ordered copies of old foreign newspapers. Then high-speed internet came. My goal was to gather all the information about this holiday and tie fantasy with factual events. Most of us have seen the movies, TV specials, or read the seasonal books. But one topic always seemed incomplete. There was no great historical fictional story about this man or his mysterious life. How did the child Chris Kringle grow into the adult we all know as Santa Claus? While my wife and I love the 1970 stop motion television special, "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town," my children wanted something more— newer and up-to-date. Our epic adventure continued because my pre-teen kids were losing interest. Christmas shouldn't be about receiving presents when there's so much else at stake.
After multiple requests by relatives, parents, and patients, I decided to write these books. There is only one reason why I took on this project— so more children can grow up to become better adults.
We can now spread this information in a positive way. It’s the perfect opportunity to enlighten the youth— especially with all the negative information out there. Like any parent will tell you, "you're never done loving or teaching your kids." We can now use the Kringle brother's views to make the world a better place. I’ve found these characters can change people’s lives and it doesn't end during Christmastime.
I hope your family enjoys our bedtime story. It’s a long one— so hang in there. As stated above— it took twenty years of research to tie it all together. Every piece of the Santa Claus puzzle will come together perfectly— not like a black leather glove that doesn't fit at trial. Like the last sentence, I had fun hiding secrets in plain sight and exposing them later. Kids of today don't grasp the "black glove" reference, but I put it out there for them to understand later. Another example, Chris Kringle doesn’t become Santa until after World War II. Remember that statement and all the clues. When you finally comprehend why he wears the red suit— you'll be blown away with the details as if you've known it all along.
All the topics are done for a reason. Don't forget— Santa's reindeer can fly because they have hollow bones— just like birds. Secretive hints are always explained in groups of three— for younger kids, adolescents, and finally adults. You will gain knowledge on a multitude of levels when you finally discover Santa is real. And wait until you meet Chris Kringle's big brother Wally— what a pair they are.
Just so parents know— there are no swear words or sexual conduct, but there will be kill scenes and violence in the young adult book series for historical reference. The youthful version of this story can be found at www.chriskringle.com under "Children’s Books."
There will be four easy to read bedtime children’s picture books;
The young adult books are ten in number, hopefully around 300-400 pages each. They have already been written, and many thanks to the editors who are working on them now.
Hang on. Enjoy the ride. It's quite the adventure. I hope you learn a thing or two. Any help on this project is truly appreciated.
Great website that teaches parents how to teach their infants sign language. Remember, the hard wiring of the brain to verbally communicate takes years of work, while the simple use of the upper extremities can be taught very quickly. Great website!
Any suggestions for Santa's website to help parents be the best they can be- email Santa and we'll put them up here!
Thank you for helping Santa and Wally with their mission of helping kids!
Yes. As of now, the Elves are working on their typing skills. Children will only receive an "out of the office" automatic reply. Santa's plan is to set up a higher functioning website to personalize-free replies for children in all different languages. As times have changed, Santa does not use snail mail. He doesn't want to waste paper anymore.
Paper is a hard to find resource at the North Pole in case you wanted to know.
The kids picture books are rated "G". It includes all the "happy" and "fun" parts of Santa and Wally's life. From birth to now, it includes their families, real people, the Elves, and of course the reindeer. It's for everyone.
The young adult book series is more PG-13. It will have real life experiences, bad guys, death, kill scenes, along with action and adventure. Think Indiana Jones level of rating due to wartime events. No sex or bad words—just to be clear.
The author wishes to remain anonymous for reasons similar to Dr. Seuss. Kids don't want to hear a Santa story from anyone but Chris or Wally Kringle. That's why the author chose to use "Chris and Wally Kringle's" name on the kids picture book, and will use the alias Dr. P on the young adult book series.
Real names are used to teach children history and pay respect to great humans who have improved mankind.
In the year 1999, right before Y2K. When the author's kids were little, it started out as a simple bedtime story during the holidays. As the children grew, so did the adventure. Twenty years later—the story is complete and ready to be shared with the world. It's truly "unbelievable," and as many adults have said over the years— "How in the world (did the author) tie all this stuff together?"
Once you understand everything in full, it will all be pieced together—almost magically.
The author discovered his kids wanted to know "everything" about Santa. This story was used as a teaching platform to educate children. Everything form being a good person, friend, and sibling. Everything is covered— ethics, morals, history, science, art, literature, sports, cars, health, geography and real life events.
At a young age, the author's children heard the term "E=MC2," or "The Roaring 1920s" or "The 1930s Great Depression" because of Santa.
Kids will have fun learning and not even know it!

Sadly, it takes a hours to explain Santa's life correctly. Just like raising good children, there is no "magic phrase" or "one simple rule" to teach kids. It takes love, patience, and constant education. One of the editors has already claimed (scene in Book #2), "If every child in the world can read this book—racism won't exist anymore."
