Welcome to Stories From the North Pole

As part of my journey as Santa's Woodsman, I visit the North Pole. Not the frozen tundra but the REAL Village at the North Pole, where Santa, the elves, and his reindeer live and play. Whenever I visit I try to collect stories that will help keep the True Magic of Christmas alive in Every Day. This is the job Saint Nicholas gave me as his thirteenth Woodsman, share the stories of the Woodsmen and the True Magic of Christmas.

My bride, Christmasana, loves to draw and has illustrated some of the stories I collected. This is really her project born from an incredible Love of the True Spirit of Christmas - Sharing, stories you can share with your children. With your help this list of stories will grow.
