Sturbridge Yankee Workshop Santa Showcase

Friday, December 6th, 2013
Santa has been given many names over the years. Santa, Santa Claus, St. Nicholas, St. Nick, Father Christmas and the list goes on if you begin including variations from other languages. The roots of where Santa Claus originated from stem from a combination of folklore in Germany, Scandinavia, Holland, and Great Britain.

This is where perhaps you have heard of Sinterclaas. Sinterclaas, who decides who is naughty and nice like our western understanding of Santa does, arrives by steam boat and chooses to ride a white-gray horse; as opposed to a sleigh and eight reindeer. Whatever you choose to call this jolly gift giving man in your home, he always finds a place in our hearts.
