The Origin of Santa Claus

by Tanner Yates

Lake Point

There was once a man who, every Christmas, saw orphans without toys and Christmas joy.

He always wondered how he could bring them the joy he deserved because it deeply depressed him to see them without toys, Christmas joy and families. If only there was a way he could help them.

Then, one day, he got an idea. He decided to make and give them all toys, but he couldn’t do it alone. He needed help. But who would help him?

He encountered some elves who volunteered to help him make the toys every year. He dressed in red and white every Christmas Eve night and took a sleigh that he built around the world to deliver the presents with the help of the reindeer, who flew with the help of Christmas magic.
