“Santa Claus is a Senior Citizen” by Nancy DeGennero, Rutherford County’s Daily News Journal, December 2, 2011:

“Although he’s a big hero for many a child, he’s also the “ultimate icon” of Christmas for all ages — especially for the “aging olders” — if you really think about it, said local author and entrepreneur Becci Bookner. ”He’s a bit too heavy, he has a round waist, white hair, but he’s such a symbol of joy,” said Bookner, a former educator who recently published “Something about Christmas.”

The book, which is small enough to fit neatly in a purse, imparts wit and wisdom Santa can teach us. “He sees the worst and he sees the best, yet he maintains that a plate of cookies and a glass of milk can solve a lot of problems,” Bookner joked. “Of all the holidays, Christmas is probably the happiest. But for a lot of people, it’s the time of year they get depressed,” said Bookner, who owns Family Staffing Solutions Inc., a company that provides care and assistance for the aging. Loss of loved ones, distance from family, isolation, in this book, the author encourages readers to remember the enthusiasm Santa embodies and translate it to the “Christmas within us.” “If you don’t have family here, there are still things you can do to have joy … and find other ways to celebrate the season,” Bookner said. Don’t get caught up in the “entrapment” of gifting.

Another section of the book is a collection of  inspirational sayings she has appreciated over the years. Bookner hopes these will stick with readers, from “smile more often” to “opportunities are everywhere; find them.” “Sometimes one-liners are more powerful than two or three paragraphs,” she said.  More of this story can be found on  website.
