Summary, etc.: This gentle Christmas book introduces the original St. Nicholas and tells why we give gifts in remembrance of the greatest gift of all. Nick is much more interested in contemplating his presents under the tree than he is in being dragged along for last-minute shopping with his dad. But while his father's off shopping, Nick hears someone say his name - it's a mall Santa, telling a group of children a story about the original St. Nick. In the long-ago story, a wealthy boy named Nicholas is moved by the sight of poor children and decides to use his family's wealth to help the needy, starting anonymously with his less-fortunate friends. Young Nick is inspired as at last he understands the joy of giving. A note at the end explains how the story of this early Nicholas might have grown into the Santa Claus of legend.
