Story of the Brotherhood

Classic Santa with sled and childFar, far away and a long time ago, Santa Claus decided he needed to move his toy shop. His decision was worrisome but Mrs. Claus agreed. He was becoming too well known for his extreme generosity every year at Christmas time and it was very hard for him to concentrate on his toy making. What with so many people stopping by the toy shop every day, he couldn't complete the toys he needed for the next year. He loved all of the little children that stopped by and wanted to spend time with them but he was finding it very difficult to complete his work. He also knew that more and more children were being born each year requiring more time to get this work finished in a timely manner for Christmas.
