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 people, mixed with real history and events—you'll love this adventure. Keep reading...
Yes. I would recommend using a parents email so they can be a part of the process and view the answer. All questions will be answered unless it's one of the major secrets that needs to be saved for the books/movies.
As times have changed, Santa does not use snail mail anymore. As of 2020, he would like children to email the Christmas wish lists or ask him questions electronically.
It normally takes around 2-3 days to get a response from Santa. Internet connectivity is slow at the North Pole, but they did just install new WiFi in the Village of Elf.
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 (YA) 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" names on the books, and will maybe use the alias Dr. P on the young adult book series.
Currently we are in the process of using REAL NAMES, REAL COMPANIES and REAL EVENTS. Our goal is 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. 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. Everything from being a good person, friend, and sibling. Multiple topics are 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!
Use the "WISH LIST" link on the top right of this website. It will take you to the bottom of the first page.
Eventually I will set up an automated system where children can enter their wish list and it will be emailed to the parents. Maybe "personalize" it as the years go by so parents don't have to pay for a "Letter From Santa" type of thing.
Remember— Santa is a hero and a teacher. Join his mailing list on the home page for news and press releases.
This is a long story— it has to be. Especially if we're finally going to prove Santa exists. After all his years of living in hiding— we now have enough information to document his existence. Much like Bob Lazar, Chris and Wally's school records, employment history, and other documentation has been destroyed. Only recently has this evidence surfaced.
I've often related this story to raising children. There is no magical phrase or one educational lesson to prove Chris Kringle is real. Similar to being a good parent— it takes years of hard work, commitment, love, and of course— dedication. This journey will help kids become better people.
In 1999, my young family had questions about Santa— the same ones which existed for generations. As things would have it, I took my kids to the mall where we stumbled across two-elderly holiday employees— Christopher and Wallace Kringle. That's the year I was informed Chris Kringle is REAL and was given information about his life. I was shocked to find out Santa has an older brother named WALLY, and the fact CHRIS was a descendant of Saint Nicholas. Specifically that year, we were told a tale never disclosed— one about two brothers continuing this legacy in the name of peace.
Most kids write Santa a letter asking for toys. My children were asked to write him letters about his life. Because of this, each December I agreed to meet the "KRINGLE BROTHERS" in private— where we held secret meetings where the bad guys couldn't find us. Chris and Wally would provide explanations and I would relay the answers to my family. That's how this adventure came to be— and my kids loved it. Before long— the topic of Santa and Christmas was a year-round affair.
Using actual history, authentic people, and established events— I discovered hidden details about the Kringle Brothers. Most people never knew Santa had an older brother, and even less realize how influential his parents were. Chris Kringle is alive, as you'll find out— because we now have the evidence and secret historical documentation to prove it. However, to explain their journey correctly, we need to start out in the year 1900— the year Santa was born.
After my annual meetings with the KRINGLE BROTHERS— I taught my kids what I learned. For most adults, the origins of Santa and Christmas are a broad and sometimes confusing subject. In our house— we secretly knew the answers and one topic became clear. Certain cultures value the holiday season differently because of religious beliefs. This created a fantastic learning experience where my kids wanted to know more about other cultures. We talked about different beliefs, and several topics in general. We discussed "How Christmas came to be", "The Roaring 20s" or the "1930s Great Depression." When high school came around, my kids understood the date October 24th, 1929— better known as "Black Thursday." That's the day the U.S. stock market crashed, but it's also the day Santa's father died. While most people don't realize how this time period relates to Chris and Wally's life, I found a way to make learning fun and tie in real history. My children could now understand complicated moments in time.
When my kids were little— the topic of Santa is all they wanted to discuss. I saw an opportunity and used this story as a teaching platform. My goal was to build upon HOW and WHY it's important to be a nice person and a good brother/sister. Chris and Wally taught my kids about their lives. In case you haven't realized it yet (like me 20 years ago)— kids listen to Santa, and so did I.
Most of us have seen the Christmas movies, TV specials or read the holiday books. It's a endless stream of delivery issues without any legitimacy. Too much fairy tale and not enough fact. With that said— this is what I wanted to change. There's no exciting historical series about Chris Kringle or his mysterious life. In this adventure, there will be no "bottomless" bag of presents or topics which don't make sense. I've been given all the documentation so we can go through this journey together.
Some of the evidence is going to shock you— hopefully in a good way. Little secrets in history will prove Chris and Wally are real. I can't wait to tell you more, but I've been asked by people in Hollywood to keep the major "Santa Secrets" under wraps— for now. My agent has agreed to let us put the "First Chapter of the First Book" on this website. I hope you take the time to read it, and see if you can determine who the patient is in room #572. The chapter of the first book is titled "Four Score & Seven Years Ago," and you can view it at the bottom of the Young Adult Books section of this website.
The only thing my young kids wanted to know— "How did Chris Kringle grow up to become Santa Claus?" That's what it all boils down to. Year after year my children would write questions. The Kringle brothers would answer them— and told me their secrets. Each Christmas I would relay their story to my kids for hours at a time— and my family was thrilled to discover legitimate answers which made sense. Then my youngest started spreading rumors about our bedtime story at his school.
At Starbucks one morning, after dropping off the kids, a few parents asked me about a topic which my son presented to his class. Apparently, these adults wanted more information about Santa's flying reindeer— which I had just went into detail a few weeks earlier. My son Ryan had informed his peers that reindeer can "jump really hight and fly" because of their hollow bones— like birds. He explained how they jump with their super strong muscles (white fiber, fast-twitch glycolytic)— which is how frogs leap so high, how cheetahs run so fast, and ultimately how reindeer fly. I didn't divulge too much at the time because of his age, but I found it interesting these parents wanted more details— and were fascinated with this biological fact (RED vs. WHITE muscle fiber). Oddly— the teacher called me in to discuss. At first, I thought I was in trouble, but as it turns out— she just wanted more information. That's when I told her more about our bedtime SANTA STORY— and she was the first to advise I should write a book. Fifteen years ago— I declined her kind gesture, but as time went by, several people convinced me to share this information. I quickly discovered adults wanted to know more as well.
Most kids of today don't realize 100-years-ago— school as we know it— didn't exist. When Santa was a little boy, people would "usually" start work early in life. It's a fact— there was no public education at the start the 20th century. My children couldn't envision working for a living or not sitting in class. Then it hit me— SANTA would be the one to describe HOW LUCKY children were to be educated. Prior to this story, my children viewed learning as a chore— until they heard horror stories from a hundred years ago. At the same time, my kids couldn't understand why Chris and Wally only had one pair of shoes, or why some children worked in a mine. My youngest didn't understand why Wally didn't travel south or why he got into trouble for "stealing an apple." My wife found it interesting that very few families had a car, women didn't drive, and so many laws were different back then. My wife freaked out when she found out— women couldn't open a bank account without their husbands present. There was a ton of things we needed to discuss— and I found many of these topics were not being taught in school.
Before we go any further, this story is historically accurate. It's a FACT that in 1776 Thomas Jefferson proposed the United States should educate every American— but this didn't happen for a variety of reasons. Almost a hundred years later, laws were passed in 1851 and 1852 (New York and Massachusetts) for those states to form a public schools— but this didn't happen either (mostly due to the start of the Civil War in 1861). From my research there is no "FIRM DATE" when our United States public educational system began, so I took some liberties with this part of the story. Very few people know Chris and Wally attended (PS1)— the first public school in New York state's history. Sadly, all their childhood school records have been destroyed by the bad guys— everything except one document.
During the early portion of Santa's life, I was also informed that children didn't receive presents under the tree. This gift-giving technique is what he's famous for— sneaking into homes on this special day of the year. When you discover the meaning of his mother's name— this will help you understand why he chose Christmas Day to deliver presents. With that said, both Chris and Wally have told me— they understand Jesus would appreciate gifts being delivered on his birthday— in the name of peace.
With this adventure starting out at the turn of the 20th century, I became fascinated by how well Chris and Wally's lives fit into history. They provided me with legitimate documents and I researched the validity. Then the fun started. I gathered more evidence from patients who grew up in Nazi Germany or others who were raised in different parts of the world. I asked older adults, professional athletes, musicians, or engineers what their careers were like. So many questions needed to be answered— especially if the Kringle's story was true.
My aunt worked for The Hershey Company in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I never knew Chris Kringle's first job was in Derry Church Township, which is now Hershey, PA. Strangely, it's one of the first clues which proves his existence. After I discovered Milton Hershey and young Chris Kringle were friends— it all made sense. Think about what Milton Hershey accomplished. He bought hundreds of acres of land, built a town, started a company, then completed his goal to create the greatest working environment— FOR HIS EMPLOYEES. After this great man passed away in 1945— Santa befriends another person named Walt who does the same thing in Anaheim. It's important because this is precisely what Chris and Wally do at the North Pole. Everything the Kringle Brothers learn—has to come from somewhere. The pieces of the puzzle were coming together
Mixing real people, history, and fantasy blew my family away. My children gained knowledge without realizing they were learning. Those early years were entertaining, but as time went by, the questions my kids asked became tougher to answer. Luckily, Chris and Wally gave me all the clues.
My kids loved the 1970 stop motion television special, "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town." However, by 3rd grade, they wanted something newer and up-to-date (thank you, Harry Potter). The topics advanced because of rumors at school. After all my years of research and meetings— my kids were starting to question the validity of you-know-who.
By 2010, the foundation was set. My kids understood all the "Santa Secrets" and I could now reveal more delicate details. Not that I'm a master storyteller, but I learned the art of "cliff-hangers" to keep my family's attention. I gave my kids the arsenal to discuss these topics with other adults. It was fun watching my pre-teens argue with relatives over factual historical evidence. Santa told me to remember the War of 1812 (which he claims is America's most forgotten war). This conflict is another clue and you won't believe how it relates to Babe Ruth. On that note— most people can't believe the 1918 World Series (between the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs)— used carrier pigeons to update soldiers with the score. It's a fact— and the Kringle Brothers have old newspapers and pictures to prove it. Chris and Wally attended those World Series games in their teens.
Our "Santa Story" really took off when all three kids were past 4th grade. They wanted more details about his life, his family, and of course— Mrs. Claus and the elves. As usual, we would start our bedtime event around December 20th of every year. My children sat and listened while I showed pictures and revealed more evidence. I also rehearsed with my wife what I was going to say.
A few things I remember from those early years— my kids didn't know what a Ford Model T looked like. They couldn't imagine a car without a radio or a DVD player. They didn't understand why Wally got his hand slapped for writing left-handed, or why Santa's dad made the boys wake up early and sell newspapers. My how times have changed.
One specific Christmas in 2012, my 60-year old father-in-law wanted to listen. He claimed we had something special and advised me to tape-record our bedtime event. (Sadly, we never did.) After years of building upon this tale— I never realized how much information was packed in here. He sat and listened for three nights straight— and claimed he learned more in those three nights than he had in several years.
To be clear— this is an adventure about Chris and Wally. There is pain, sorrow, death, and of course joy. Everything around the belly of the earth is TRUE, but when we get to the North Pole— all the gloves come off. The good guys always win, but the true moral of this story is about giving and treating people nice. At the end of all this— you get to decide— are Chris and Wally real or are they even alive? That's part of the secret and ultimately answers why Santa lives at the North Pole. And wait until you hear about the bad guys— the evil Confraters and how they're embedded in history.
After multiple requests by relatives, parents, and even patients, I decided to write these books. There is only one reason I took on this project— so more children can grow up to become better adults. I believe this story can impact humanity, as one of my editors has already claimed, "If every child hears this story—racism will not exist anymore." I've always appreciated his comment, and it's true— once you understand the Harvard part of Chris and Wally's life.
Books #1 and #2 are almost done being edited. We are close to spreading this knowledge in a positive way. I've been told Santa is the perfect person 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 lives to make the world a better place. These characters will change the way you think— and it doesn't end during Christmastime.
By the time my kids were teenagers, every piece of the Santa Claus mystery fit together perfectly— not like a black leather glove that doesn't hold up at trial. Per the last sentence, when telling a story, I like to hide secrets right in front of you— then expose them later. Young children don't grasp the "black glove" reference, but I enjoy dropping hints deep within the story world.
An example of how I like to tell stories would be "Hodor" from Game of Thrones. If you've seen it, you know it took HBO four seasons to reveal Hodor's name— and it was a magical payoff. The same with Wally's name and how Chris becomes Santa. It's a trip when you discover the "true meaning" behind these two men as I've enjoyed spreading breadcrumbs for you to figure out. I believe there is power in discovering things on your own— while learning something new at the same time.
If you didn't see it on the first page of this website, Christopher Kringle is a descendant of St. Nick. However, he doesn't know it in the story, and it's something he and Wally must figure out on their own. One other adult mystery to decode— Chris Kringle doesn't "officially" become "Santa Claus" until after World War II. Remember that statement and all the clues. When you finally grasp how Chris becomes Santa— you'll be blown away as if you've known it all along.
Most adults believe the company Coca-Cola was involved in Santa wearing the red suit— but that's not why he wears this apparel. I would never make it that easy for anyone to guess, but would rather include those details for historical reference. If you know your history— the answer about the "red suit" has already been given. If you got it, good for you. If you didn't, don't worry— you'll be surprised when it's finally revealed. It's a big payoff, and I promise, in the end it will all be worth your time. Also, since we're on topic— Chris and Wally never die. They may come close— closer than you'd like, but the Kringle Brothers aren't dying on my watch. They will always survive for future generations.
Another popular question over the years (also on the front page of this website)— how does Santa live so long? Here's the answer. Do you know why we put food into the refrigerator? Fruits and vegetables last 3-4x longer in a colder environment. Similar to this analogy— that's why the Kringle Brothers live at the North Pole. Residing in a more polar location will allow them to survive at least 300 years. Scientists have now predicted Chris and Wally will live until the year 2200, or maybe longer. Other clues suggest they may never die at all.
All the questions about Christmas and Santa will finally be answered with logical terms. There's no politics or religion— just a fun atmosphere. Don't forget— North Pole reindeer can fly because of their hollow bones— just like birds. Secretive hints are always explained in groups of three— for younger kids, adolescents, and finally adults. I hope you gain knowledge on a multitude of levels as you'll eventually discover Chris Kringle is real. He's a part of all of us— because we're all in this together. And wait until you hear Wally's side of the story. He's the most incredible big brother you've never heard of. One VERY famous person was once quoted as saying, "America wouldn't have won the Revolutionary War," without Wally's great ancestor.
On the back of the first children's picture book was a notation for www.chriskringle.com, where children can now email Santa their wish-list, or any question they desire. This was first released during Christmas 2020. Since that time, kids around the globe have emailed Santa questions— just like my children did twenty years ago. Santa (or the elves) normally respond within 2-3 days, also cc'ing the parents as well. I'll post a few copies of the questions and the responses. They're hilarious, and if you or your child has any questions— feel free to ask.
There will be four easy-to-read bedtime picture books.
"How I Became Santa Clause," by Chris Kringle
"How I Became Santa's Big Brother," by Wally Kringle
"How I Became Mrs. Clause," by Norene Williams
"How I Became Santa's Favorite Elf," by Bano
One more thing— in all the books (and or movies), there will be no swear words or sexual conduct. For the children's picture books, think Dr. Seuss but with historical accuracy. There's also a front page for Santa, Wally, Mrs. Claus, or the Elves to autograph. This, of course, is done when they come to your home or when you see them in person.
YOUNG ADULT (YA) BOOKS:
Right now, the young adult books are ten in number, each explains approximately a decade starting out in 1900. The reading is easy for 5th/6th grade and above— and provides enough secrets to make it entertaining for adults. The subject matter builds upon the details of the volume before, typically age-appropriate for Chris and Wally's life. Everything has been written except book #9, which will be explained— in due time.
The topics of the YA series will build off the children's picture books but with greater detail. However, in the older group, the bad guys do commit crimes. Chris and Wally perform bloody detective work, and there is violence for historical reference. History is history— tell it how it is. Several famous murders will be discussed and theorized. Everything from Jack the Ripper (London, 1888) to JFK (Dallas, 1963). With that said, my research tells me most people have forgotten about President Theodore Roosevelt getting shot while running for a third term (1912). Four years removed from office, Teddy gave a speech in Milwaukee and was hit in the chest at point-blank range. I never knew this information growing up— but my kids will never forget the details after seeing how the Kringle brothers were involved.
As of March 2021, while the books are being edited, I've attempted to write movie scripts— which is an entirely different animal. I never thought it would be so difficult to cram this story into a 120-page script. To be blunt— I never planned on doing any of this. In fact, I never had a desire to write anything at all. However, like my wife said, "It's a great story and you need to make it public."
Please remember Chris and Wally's life mission. They want people to understand how humans are all the same, not argue about our differences, and treat each other with respect. Their goal is equality, to rid the world of hate, and eventually obtain world peace— hence why they give gifts to children who are GOOD. Hopefully, their mission statement will be well received by the people who need to hear it the most.
Lastly, any feedback is greatly appreciated. Let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or advice. If you see a typo, let me know. I don't take it personally as I have another full-time job. I'd love to hear from you (good or bad) as it can only make the story better.
Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoy our bedtime adventure. It will be out soon...
