The Gift for Mrs. Claus
“One of my favorite traditions of Christmas is making a gift for my wife,” says Christensen. “Whether it is a drawing of one of our children, a fantasy painting or a stained glass fish to hang in the kitchen window, I know that it will have special meaning for her because I have taken the time to make it.
The anticipation of that moment of surprise is as much a part of the joy and excitement as the expression on her face when she actually opens her present. In ‘The Gift for Mrs. Claus,’ I tried to capture the sense of delightful conspiracy as Father Christmas puts aside a little extra time to prepare a special surprise for his wife.”
