Advent Calendar Door 24 🤶🏼


Christmas is here and Santa is on his way! 🎅🏼


The origin of Santa Claus

Santa Claus—otherwise known as Saint Nicholas or Kris Kringle—has a long history steeped in Christmas traditions. Today, he is thought of mainly as the jolly man in red who brings toys to good girls and boys on Christmas Eve, but his story stretches all the way back to the 3rd century, when Saint Nicholas walked the earth and became the patron saint of children.


German and Dutch immigrants brought the belief in him to the United States in the 18th and 19th centuries, where the idea was taken up by American poets such as Washington Irving and Clement Clarke Moore.


His distinctive appearance was shaped by the cartoonist Thomas Nast, whose illustrations of European folk tunes soon made Santa famous around the world. In 1890, merchant James Edgar was the first to dress up as Santa Claus in a red coat and white beard to greet children at his department store in Brockton, Massachusetts. This action was met with so much enthusiasm that many copied the idea. Even today, department stores and shopping malls have a Santa Claus on site as standard at Christmastime.
