The Twelve Laws of Santa Claus™ is an illustrated book for everyone of any age by Christopher Hogan Lay.
The book reveals Santa’s other list. Guidelines to help bring Christmas Spirit to the world all year long from the iconic and benevolent sage.

My intention is to inspire children and the parents of children from 4 to 10 to share and discuss the many ways to live a great life. Santa was chosen as a somewhat secular messenger for his ability to influence people of most any age or culture from around the globe.
The hope for this book is that it will be successful beyond the aforementioned age range it was originally intended. A small but inspirational book that will touch the hearts from the youngest of children to the oldest of adults and promote an opportunity for conversation.
This is my first venture into the world of publishing. I am a creative person who feels inspired to find a way to help others and learn along the way. The message of The Twelve Laws of Santa Claus is more important to me than the images I have created for this project. The images, however, can be viewed at TheTwelveLawsofSantaClaus.com on the ABOUT THE BOOK page, Facebook, as well as the accompanying prints.
The graphics are based upon a 1960’s era Santa Claus found in an Atlanta antique store. This image may be replicated as a doll or an ornament. The “Claus Laws” would be placed on t-shirts, posters, calendars, etc. Fans of the book would be asked to contemplate which “Law” they feel is the most important to them and ask them to show how they “Believe”.
My hope is that The Twelve Laws of Santa Claus will be well loved much like The Night Before Christmas and The Elf on the Shelf, not in competition with but as an addition to those examples of the wonderful spirit of Christmas.
This book will be utilized in the effort to promote children’s literacy and anti-bullying by encouraging kids to believe in themselves. Readings will be delivered to schools, hospitals, libraries, camps and shelters both domestically and worldwide.
