A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Santa Claus Collection - Santa Claus, the pudgy, jolly, bearded man who delivers presents at Christmas time, is based on a 4th century Turkish bishop, Saint Nicholas. A version is that he provided a dowry for three daughters of an impoverished man, and as he threw the bags of gold through the window, one fell into a stocking hanging by the fireplace. A popular European festival called the “boy bishop” is celebrated Dec. 6, which is also Saint Nicholas’ feast day. Although the custom of exchanging gifts on a special day during the winter predated Christianity, Saint Nicholas became the symbol of this custom among Christians. In England he is called Father Christmas, France - Pére Noël, Germany - Weihnachtsmann, Denmark and Norway - Julenissen. The Dutch brought him to America where children spoke Sinterklaas in such a way that it came out as Santy Claus or Santa Claus. The poem with “`Twas the night before Christmas...” (Clement Moore, 1823), along with cartoons in Harper’s Weekly (1863-4) by Thomas Nast, really formulated our American image of Santa Claus. There are wonderful variations on the character making Santa Claus a worldwide phenomenon.
