The author Daniel Kibblesmith reportedly came up with the idea for the book while he and his wife were discussing how their future children will be told that Santa is black — though he is not black himself. They decided that since mall Santas are traditionally white, they will just tell their children that those are “Santa’s husband.”
The idea led to this book, designed to intentionally upset people who believe that there is a war on Christmas.
“In this witty and sweet illustrated Christmas tale, humor writer Daniel Kibblesmith introduces us to Mr. and Mr. Claus, and gives us a glimpse of their lives together. We see the Clauses sitting by the fire at their cozy North Pole home, vacationing at the beach, having an occasional disagreement, celebrating their wedding day, and comforting each other when some loudmouth people on television angrily dispute Santa’s appearance and lifestyle,” the book’s description on Amazon reads.
The description goes on to say that “in the weeks before Christmas, Santa’s husband helps with all the pre-Christmas work, from double-checking lists, to feeding the reindeer (organic gluten-free grains, of course), to negotiating labor disputes with the restive workshop elves. At the height of toy-making season, he even fills in for his busy hubby at the mall to ensure every child can meet the Big Guy in the red suit, and give him their wish list.”
The book is being published by the mainstream publisher Harpercollins and has received high praise from the liberal media.
“A genuinely sweet story that depicts a sound, joyful marriage,” Vice News gushed.
