19. A Woodland Advent - December 1

Santa Bear, Woodland Christmas
Skating merrily into Advent this year is Santa Bear, the "True Love" of my Woodland Christmas, Twelve Days of Christmas in the North Woods (Scholastic, 1995).
I was born in Northern Ontario and raised in Montreal, Quebec, and while I never became a hardy Canadian (cold hands, cold feet) the beauty of our northern winters never fails to inspire me. This year's Advent theme is Woodland, with a few visitors from afar.
