Taking the beloved symbol of merriment out of his conventional trappings and into the world of imaginative folklore, Baum gives Santa Claus an exciting life that evokes all the charm, warmth, and fantasy that made his Oz stories American classics.
"In all this world there is nothing so beautiful as a happy child..." ...says L.Frank Baum's Santa Claus. These words also expressed the credo of the delightfully imaginative creator of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus. Taking the beloved symbol of merriment out of his conventional trappings and into the world of folklore, Baum gives Santa Claus an exciting life that evokes all the charm, warmth, and fantasy that made his Oz stories American classics. We discover the boy Claus growing up in an enchanted forest with a whole cast of mythical creatures - elves and wood nymphs, evil Awgwas, and the Master Woodsman AJc. We see how Claus makes his first toy and find out why he goes down chimneys, how he chooses his reindeer and what it's like when he ventures out on Christmas, delivering the message: "Have some fun, even in the middle of winter. A toy delivered by a stranger in the middle of the night may almost be enough to convince you that the invisible world, every once in a while, is on your side.''
A baby is found by wood nymphs in the forest of Burzee. They raise him as their own and give him the name Neclaus. When he grows up, Neclaus has to leave the forest so he makes a home for himself in the laughing valley of Hohaha, where he lives amongst humans for the first time. He discovers there that many children are very poor and neglected so, to cheer them up, he whittles wooden toys as gifts. Eventually he makes presents for all the children and so the story of Santa Claus is born.Fashioned as a whimsical fairy tale, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus was published in 1902, just two years after L. Frank Baum’s masterpiece of the imagination, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.This festive Macmillan Collector's Library edition of The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus features charming, original illustrations by Mary Cowles Clark and an afterword by writer and journalist Ned Halley.

Is Christkind going to disappear because of Santa Claus? Will Austrian Christmas traditions be eradicated because of the heavy influence of the United States and Americanization processes? Questions and complaints concerning the issue “Christkind vs. Santa Claus” have become more prevalent and are increasinlgy discussed in the Austrian public discourse. Although most Christmas traditions originated elsewhere, the U.S. has been criticized for turning the festival into a commercial carnival and overriding other cultures with its powerful exports. By analyzing several Austrian magazines, American influences and their impact on the representation of Christmas have been investigated. The outcome of this study illustrates that a cultural event can be local and global at the same time, and that Americanisms co-exist with Austrian peculiarities. Although American symbols certainly do play an important role in present Austrian Christmas celebrations there is no sign of the substitution of Austrian symbols and traditions. This study demonstrates how Santa Claus and Christkind can co-exist and how new hybrid forms and meanings have evolved.
