What’s the Story Behind Santa Claus and Christmas?
Clement Clarke Moore, an Episcopal preacher, wrote “An Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas,” most commonly known as “‘Twas The Night Before Christmas,” for his three daughters in 1822. Moore’s poem is mainly responsible for our present image of Santa Claus as a “right jolly old elf” with a chubby physique and the miraculous ability to climb chimneys with a simple nod of his head! In addition, Moore’s poem popularized the now-famous image of Santa Claus traveling from house to house on Christmas Eve in “a small sleigh” escorted by reindeer to deliver presents for fortunate youngsters. “An Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas” became an instant classic in the United States.
In 1881, political cartoonist Thomas Nast used Moore’s text to create the first depiction of Santa Claus that we recognize today. In Nast’s work, Santa was represented as a chubby, jovial man with a thick, white beard, bearing a sack packed with goodies for lucky kids, which featured in Harper’s Weekly. Nast is responsible for Santa’s bright red coat with white fur trim, the North Pole workshop, the elves, and his wife, Mrs. Claus.
Santa Claus, who first appeared in America in the 18th century, was not the first gift-giver inspired by St. Nicholas. Similar figurines and Christmas traditions can be seen throughout the world. Christkind, also known as Kris Kringle, was said to bring gifts to well-behaved Swiss and German youngsters. “Christ child” is the literal translation. St. Nicholas is frequently joined by Christkind, an angel-like figure, on his holiday trips. Jultomten, a merry elf, was said to carry gifts on a sleigh carried by goats in Scandinavia.
Father Christmas is said to visit homes so that he may fill children’s stockings with festive treats. Père Nol, on the other hand, is the one in charge of filling French children’s shoes. A helpful witch named La Befana flies a broomstick, and she’s the one supposedly responsible for flying down chimneys to leave toys to lucky kids.
Santa Claus is frequently pictured in the United States as flying from house to house on Christmas Eve delivering toys to children. He passes on his magical sleigh, driven by his eight famous and magical reindeer. As Clement Clarke Moore wrote in his famous poem, Santa enters each home, which is why empty Christmas stockings are “hung by the Chimney,” hoping that Old St. Nick will come.
Candy canes and other sweets, as well as tiny trinkets and treats, can be placed in stockings.
Santa Claus is said to live in the North Pole, and on Christmas Eve, youngsters begin to write letters to Santa and trace his trip throughout the world. On Christmas Eve, children frequently leave milk and cookies for Santa and carrots for his magical reindeer. To select who deserves gifts, Santa Claus is said to have a “naughty list” and a “good list,” and parents frequently use these lists to ensure that their youngsters behave well. The hit song “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” is based on the lists.
