Christmas on Lindbergh Mountain
Christmas is coming! It’s the season to be jolly! Yes, Yes, Yes!
Ho, Ho, Ho! What will Christmas be like if Santa Claus can’t make it to Lindbergh Mountain?
Kristen is worried that Santa will not be able to find her family’s old run-down cabin on Lindbergh Mountain. Her father told her that he read in the newspaper – The Lindbergh Mountain Gazette – that due to dangerous weather conditions, Santa would not be able to make it to Lindbergh Mountain. It would be absolutely impossible for Santa to come this year.
But, just the day before, Kristen overheard Santa Claus talking to Mrs. Claus.
Kristen had gone to see Santa at Feeney’s Department Store. She had to go back there because she had changed her mind about everything on her original Christmas list. On this Christmas Eve last-minute visit, she told Santa that she only wanted coal, even though she was a perfectly-behaved little girl. She did not want any toys at all!
On her earlier visit, she had a long list of toys that she wanted for Christmas. Santa wondered why she just wanted lumps of coal. Santa was puzzled and curious about this unusual request.
And as Kristen got up from his lap, she heard him talking to Mrs. Claus. She distinctly heard Santa say something about giving her “The Secret of the Reindeer.”
When she awoke on Christmas morning, Kristen noticed a pile of fluffy reindeer fur, lying on the floor which was next to a note from Santa. And the fur seemed to have magical powers.
She couldn’t wait another minute to wake her mom and dad and her brother, Ryan. Kristen tapped the fluffy reindeer fur. The living room was aglow with the magic of Santa and his elves in his workshop.
Elves ran to and fro, sleigh bells rang, and bags of shiny coins, toys, food and coal for the old stove appeared. Santa even left her a new pet – a baby reindeer!
Christmas on Lindbergh Mountain was definitely the best ever!

Christmas on Lindbergh Mountain is a gift for any age. A charming tale with a heartwarming message. I wish that I had a “lapful” of grandchildren to read this enchanting tale during the holiday season. The message of the story really touched my heart.
Finally, the untold story of Santa’s Magic has been told! Patricia Gallagher and daughter Katelyn weave a wonderful tale that fulfills on its promise to “bring fantasy, warmth and magic of Christmas to all who hear these words.” The true gift of Christmas shines through the loving actions of the main character, Kristen. And, of course, Kristen’s unselfish actions do not go unnoticed by Santa. Free audio story on website. I intend to make it part of my Christmas tradition from now on.
This delightful story is sure to become a holiday classic. A great read-aloud story to be enjoyed by all generations and diverse cultures. I sat for a half-hour just listening and imagining that it was all true!
You feel a sense of magic when you imagine all of the things that happened to the family, on Christmas Eve not too many years ago.

Sweet little Kristen, the main character in the story exemplifies the virtues that we as parents want to impart to our children.
