Merry Christmas Eve! Welp, Christmas is tomorrow and I’ve been having some problems with WordPress.com and the Jetpack plugin on my actual website syncing together. Needless to say my last few posts are lost. Meh.
To get to my real point of this post, today I want to share more Santa history with the kids so I Bing and I did our thing and I found an excellent resource to jumpstart a conversation. WhyChristmas.com has an excellent short explanation of each version of Santa through the years. it begins with the history of Saint Nicholas and ends with the famous Coca-Cola Santa Claus.
To compliment this discussion I found symbols of Christmas minibooks posted on DiyHomeschooler. As per usual, History.com has a host of videos of articles relating to the history of Santa Claus. If you click over to St.NicholasCenter.org there are all kinds of games and printables to keep kids busy today.
As a parent, Christmas is a magical time. Christmas Eve, however can be the longest day of the year, lol! I hope you find these resources helpful in educating your kids about Santa and keeping them busy at the same time.
Looks like it’s going to be a Santa education celebration around here today!
