Arita's inspiration for The Santa Story and Tina came when
she told her then-3-year-old daughter about Santa. Shortly

"for you, Mommy, from Santa." She had expected her
youngster to focus on imagining all the gifts she might receive and
was touched that she first imagined ways that she could give.
