Synopsis

Yesterday's Santa and the Chanukah Miracle by Sarah Hartt-Snowbell

Annie can't believe her eyes! The Santa in the mall looks so much like her grandfather's friend, Simon. A Jewish Santa? Annie lines up to get a closer look - and ends up placing an order . Simon Greenbaum, flat broke, has taken the job at the Winter Castle to earn a few dollars between jobs. And after all, with his long white beard, he looks just like Santa already. Don't breathe a word to your Zaideh that you saw me here, he says. If you don't tell him that I'm a Santa Claus, I won't tell him what you asked for. It's a deal? When Annie's parents find out, however, that she has placed an order with Santa for a Christmas tree, they are disappointed and tell her that she must learn to be her own person and stand up for her beliefs in order to earn the respect of others. Meanwhile, Annie wants to help Mr. Greenbaum and comes up with a plan. But to carry out her plan, she must reveal his secret. What will she do?
