Night Before Christmas Author Addresses Twin Individual Identity |
Cynthia F. Panks, Author of Twins' Night Before Christmas, is helping multiples with their need for others to understand the importance of their individual identity.
Every person wants to be recognized as an individual. For multiples, this is often a difficult matter, especially for multiples who look so much alike. Cynthia is committed to helping others realize how important individual identity is to multiples.
In Twins’ Night Before Christmas, Santa already knows the identity of identical twins, Matilda and Monica, and addresses each of them by their given names. “How did Santa do it? Did he just guess? Twins identity crisis can cause so much stress. If friends cannot do it, how did this jolly elf recognize each twin for her unique self?”
When the girls try to disprove Santa's keen ability, they learn a very valuable life lesson when Santa affirms the importance of being true to ones' self with "actions and words that define separate hearts".
The story prompts parents and children to engage in a conversation about their individual uniqueness and personality.
All of Cynthia's grandchildren are twins; her two daughters each have a set of twin girls; one set is identical and the other, fraternal. She and her husband are retired educators who reside in their hometown, Slidell, Louisiana, where she continues to write and work as a Freelance Video Editor.
