A Captured Santa Claus
A light hearted approach to young and olds approach to a Santa photo tradition.
Just who is Santa Claus? Join Joe as he discovers his life isn't as useless and empty as he thought it had become. When Charlie, the little girl with the big heart, teams up with him, they discover the true magic of Christmas. A peek inside: "Part of what I got, when I became a 'Nicholas," is the ability to be with certain people. What they know about a child, we know. In turn, their ability to relate to children, is magnified, so they can help them. We can't reach every child who needs it, because there are not nearly enough who can do the work. We can't tell you how you'll know, but you will know when a certain child needs extra 'attention.' When you touch them to let them on your lap or say hello, they'll feel the unconditional love that is the Spirit of Christmas."
