Christian Schreiner, Dean of Anglican Cathedral, Sells Santas

They were little Santas. Then, in this advent season, they gave birth to something beyond themselves.

Before becoming 2,250 Santas, they were wooden dowels. The Very Rev. Christian Schreiner, dean of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity and rector of the Anglican parish that worships there, and his wife, Esperanza Rada, cut them into three different lengths with an angled plane at one end.
