Santa Claus: Saint, Shaman, and Symbolby Bill Palmer
If you don't believe in Santa, you might want to reconsider. The familiar fellow dressed in red has been around a lot longer than Coca Cola, longer than Rudolph, longer even than "The Night Before Christmas." His earliest and most ancient forms brought hope and cheer to generation after generation of humankind-and he still has a message for us today. In the midst of the materialism of the modern holiday, Santa offers us a bridge between the physical, secular world and the spiritual, sacred realm. He calls us to remember the power of love to bring hope, even in the midst of cold and dark. Discover his history and evolution, from Ice Age shaman to medieval saint to modern-day icon. Get to know Santa-and believe all over again.
