Like many of the great Comic Book artists and writers of the Golden Age, Will Eisner was Jewish. That did not keep him from becoming identified with the Christmas holiday via his annual CHRISTMAS SPIRIT stories. This one is from 1946, his first holiday season back from the War. As with many of the best SPIRIT stories, the main character himself is incidental to this one and barely appears.
