Christmas seems to be under attack from what some have called "secular fundamentalism." Presumably to avoid giving offense, businesses forbid their employees from wishing customers “Merry Christmas," retailers substitute Holiday trees for their Christmas cousins, and some school districts have transformed Christmas break into Winter break. This visually stunning picture book for children asks, "What happened to Merry Christmas?"

As Christmas becomes more commercial and secular, Christian parents are increasingly challenged to teach about the real meaning of the day and about celebrating our Savior's birth. In this story for children ages five and up, children can learn about a little boy who discovers that Christmas truly is everywhere we are. For those who believe, the message of God's love in Jesus and the story of His birth are still found in the symbols and traditions of even a modern Christmas.

Join author Robert C. Baker in the conversation! You'll find information about "Christmas wars," links to Web sites offering guidance for parents, teachers, and administrators concerned about keeping Christmas in public schools, Christmas recipes, and so on on his blog,
