H.M. "Gramps" Bricker
The author, "Gramps Bricker", is just another story telling grandparent who has seen his children, grandchildren, and now his great grandchildren voice their doubts upon seeing so many Santas everywhere without a beard. During one Christmas season, H. Michael Bricker took his grandson Sean to visit Santa at a mall. Sean saw Santa putting on his beard and said, "Look Gramps, that Santa is a fake. That's not even a real beard!" Thus the idea for The Christmas Santa Had No Beard was born.
