Performing at the Orange County Children’s Book Festival These OC Moms, Janeen Antonelli and Michelle Pohl, Are Helping Bring a Little Extra Magic to Halloween

The Halloween Fairy Keeps Christmas Merry

"It's a story of Santa needing candy to fatten himself."

Santa wakes from his long winter nap and there’s a problem – his magic suit doesn’t fit! The elves quickly jump to action and call the Halloween Fairy. Kids leave their trick-or-treat candy out for the Fairy to collect and she leaves a gift in exchange for the sugary loot. The fairy then delivers the candy to Santa who fattens up just in time to deliver Christmas presents to kids around the world. “The Halloween Fairy Keeps Christmas Merry” is a wonderful new tale for kids to read that gets the treats out of the house without a fight, leaving both parents and kids happy.

“We always had too much candy in the house after Halloween and it was a constant struggle to make sure the kids didn’t eat too much,” said Antonelli, author of “The Halloween Fairy Keeps Christmas Merry.” “Finally we decided we’d create our own tradition."
