Santa's Big White Chicken

One Christmas many years ago, Louis's stepson gave him a Christmas tree ornament, a wood carved Santa sitting astride a chicken. He couldn't help wonder what the story was behind such a ridiculous ornament. He tried to find some clue as to its origin but found nothing. So to satisfy his own curiosity, he wrote this poem to give the Santa life. He would read it to his grandchildren every Christmas until they grew up. Now since his oldest grandson, Louis Lonsway, has grown into a talented illustrator, he suggested to him that he illustrate the story and that together, they would try to produce a new Christmas legend.
