Blends fantasy and allegory to give families and children a fresh look at the wonder of the Incarnation and of the "Christmas" that occurs when God finds a lost sinner. ^Dylan loves his family's yearly vacation to Holiday and wishes it could last all year. When he finds a flyer asking if he'd like to keep Holiday, he encounters a bigger and better Holiday than the one his family has always visited; he also learns that entering it requires the Founder's authorization. Thus begins Dylan's quest to meet the one of whom people keep saying: "You can't find the Founder; he finds you./He's not just the Founder, he's the Finder too." ^As Dylan reads of Holiday's origins, he experiences a number of adventures and meets characters who represent the sights and sounds he always finds in Holiday--characters who explain how each of these familiarities points to the Founder's previous rescue of the city's inhabitants.

Lord, as I sit down at a Thanksgiving table once again, I want to thank You for Your goodness to me.Thank You for meeting my needs every day-for food and shelter and clothing, and for the many extras You provide that I so often take for granted.Thank You for family and friends who make my life complete. Thank You that even when we are miles apart, we are bound by the cords of Your love.Thank You that I live in a country where I am free to worship You and to read Your Word.Most of all, I thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ, who is the "light of the world." When I turned to Him, He flooded the darkness of my soul with the light of Your love.Thank You that He not only died for my sins, but that He is alive today at Your side-hearing my prayers and preparing a home for me in Heaven.Thank You that Jesus came into this world and took up residence in my life as Savior, Lord, and God.Thank You for all that You have given me as a Christian: the Holy Spirit who is Your presence in my life, the Bible that is a light to my pathway, and Christian friends who encourage and help me.Thank You that I can face tomorrow with hope because Jesus is living for me.O, Lord, how truly rich I am! Thank You for all You mean to me."Be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations" (Psalm 100:4-5).
