About Dr. Xmas


Who is Dr. Xmas?

Meet Dr. Xmas, your consummate holiday expert. Born on December 25th (we’ll save the year) the holidays, especially Christmas, have held a special place in her heart since she was a tiny tot.  

She’s made Christmas and all its festivities, myths and folklore her niche. Exploring Christmas—its joy and magic and what it means to those around her is where she puts just some of her unstoppable, bubbly yuletide energy.


Dr. Xmas has a life-long connection to Christmas as well as a passion for education and literature. She’s a UCLA graduate, holds certification from the Children’s Institute for Children’s Literature and earned a Master of Science degree from Syracuse University. She is an educator, a writer and a business woman. Oh, and in her spare time, she consults in the media and marketing world.  


Your Rx for the holidays...

Dr. Xmas covers all monthly holidays, both big and small--all year long. Her Xmas Kid blog and podcast reminds us to celebrate these special days.

In her book, Taking Back Your Holidays, she explores all holiday themes, rituals and those crazy things we do each holiday season. Some of them you may have been wondering about for years: Why does Santa fill socks? What’s with kissing under mistletoe and whose brilliant idea was it for making fruitcake anyway? Other traditions, well—who knew. She humorously reveals all in the name of peace on earth and peace of mind.

Her goal? To spread good tidings of great cheer and all things Tiny Tim to a sometimes too-busy-for-Christmas world. Whew! Now that’s something worth striving for, don’t you think?  Enjoy and happy holiday-ing!
