Yes, America, There is a Santa Claus

529711b7-21dc-431b-8e03-8c1c5a080b4bThis time of year the fat man in the red suit makes quite an appearance.  From Coke to malls to everything in between, Santa is ubiquitous.

For those who are interested, there is a great website that has collected all of the historical information we have on St. Nicholas and how this historic person has become the “Santa with a Coke” we have today.

There are plenty of crafts, stories, and ideas for celebrations this year that may be out of the ordinary for many people.  I strongly encourage you to check it out.

Merry Christmas!
