A Black Santa Is Coming To Town Thanks To Hey Carter! Books Founder Thomishia Booker

eTradeWire News/10710766
SUISUN, Calif. - eTradeWire -- It's the most wonderful time of the year! We all have holiday traditions, whether that's hanging a mistletoe above the doorway to steal a kiss, baking Christmas cookies, and our favorite, seeing Santa Claus!

Come celebrate the magic of Christmas with author and mother, Thomishia Booker for a special event for the family, special packages and a chance to grab a copy of her book, Santa Claus is Coming to The Town, a spin on your favorite Christmas character that provides Black children with a Santa that represents them and not the Santa we constantly see pictured in the media.

"Growing up, I only saw a white Santa. The jolly old man who brought all the gifts and the magic of Christmas was always white. We never had a chimney for him to come down, but he always made it to our house. This narrative didn't become problematic for me until I became a parent. As a parent, I always try to be cognizant of the messaging I surround my children with." says Thomishia Booker, Author of Hey Carter! Books. "Santa Claus is a mythical character and should be presented in a variety of skin tones. I wanted my children to experience the magic of Christmas from a familiar and comforting point of view."
