It’s a great story for Christmas or anytime of the year.

It’s a story for the entire family told by Emperor Norton’s most loyal followers, two rat-catching dogs named Bummer and Lazarus.

Norton became a vagrant wandering the streets. But nothing could keep his spirits down for long, especially in a place like San Francisco. He soon became one of the most beloved eccentrics in the city’s history.

Because of Emperor Norton there’s been a Christmas tree in San Francisco’s Union Square every year since.
