The Real Meaning of Christmas
By: Reginald (Regg) Keyawa
About the Book
In 1822, Clement Clarke Moore, an Episcopal minister, wrote a long Christmas poem entitled An Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas, more popularly known as ’Twas the Night before Christmas. Good, bad, or otherwise, Christmas has become more about Santa Claus and less about its true meaning, the Birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The Real Meaning of Christmas shows a man starting out as Santa Claus, worshipping the Christ Child, and leaving as St. Nicholas.
