by Randall Cummings
A long time ago time in a faraway land, a kingdom banded together at the request of its king to prepare a special gift for a Holy Child. After many months of labor, the king and his son were on their way to Bethlehem to deliver the gift.
After having done so, the king promised the Child’s parents he would keep the Child’s birthday as a special day set aside to remember His birth, His life, and the gift He came to give to mankind. He kept this promise for many years, eventually passing the responsibility for doing so onto his son.
In this delightful story of how Santa Claus came to be, combined with the biblical tale of the birth of Jesus, Randall Cummings has created a charming children’s tale in The Gift: Santa’s First Christmas.
About the Author: A native of Nevada, Randall Cummings and his wife, Kathy, have three children: David, Sarah, and Rachel. Holding a bachelor of arts in sociology, Mr. Cummings has always enjoyed the wholesome stories and traditions of the holidays as well as the timeless truths found in the Scriptures.
