ITEM #: 40104 Nordic Santa Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. The legend of Santa Claus is derived from the European figure St. Nicholas and American writers who wrote children’s poems in the 19th century. Santa Claus became the jolly man clad in red – the folk hero all children dream about on Christmas Eve. Before the classic red and white outfit he wears that we all know and love, Santa lived in the woods wearing his snowflake Nordic patterned coat, and cared for his deer in nature's solitude.
