MAITLAND, Fla., Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In her new book, Christmas Without Santa: Creating a Christ-Centered Christmas ($15.99, paperback, 9781628712773; $7.99, e-book, 9781628712780) Jeannie Schulman shares unforgettable, real life memories from Christmases past. This heart-warming book also offers readers dozens of brilliant holiday traditions to adopt as their very own. The author seeks to provide families with hands-on activities that are both meaningful and fun, and that keep Jesus as the focal point of Christmas. From unique twists on common Christmas traditions to lively games, hands-on activities, crafts, calendars, recipes and devotions, and fun ways to keep the surprise in Christmas, this book has it all.
"This book cracks the controversial debate in Christian circles about whether to include pagan symbols, like Santa, in Christian celebrations," states the author. "It does much more than simply providing the reader with philosophies and beliefs on Christmas traditions. It offers practical suggestions for how to implement those ideas by providing unique ideas on how to bring the wonder and excitement to Christmas that Santa does without having Santa secretly leave presents underneath the tree."
Jeannie Schulman not only draws on her own forty years of creative experience, but on that of many other families. This book is a compilation of kid-tested, kid-approved ideas and traditions from a blend of people invested in making Christmas a magical time. Jeannie Schulman has four children who are the inspiration for all of her creative work. She has worked extensively with children as the owner of Kidz Explore, as well as Young Authors and Illustrators Writing and Publishing. She also has a B.A. in psychology and has worked with children as a psychological technician and house parent for troubled youth.
