The Lore of St. Christopher:
According to legend, St. Christopher devoted his life to Christ and began to carry travelers across an impassable river and deliver them safely on the other side. One day, a child asked to be carried across the river. St. Christopher agreed and set out across the river carrying the child on his shoulders. As he began to cross the river, the child got heavier and heavier with each step. St. Christopher said that it seemed the whole world couldn’t have been as heavy on his shoulders as the child. The child revealed himself as the Christ Child and told St. Christopher that he had in fact carried the whole weight of the world on his shoulders and Him who created it.
St. Christopher necklaces have long been popular with explorers, drivers, and surfers.
