Santa Claus is Coming
I’m sure that jolly little fellow has been on many minds since the Thanksgiving holiday has passed. He certainly has been on my mind as I’ve been creating little Santa and holiday men over the past few weeks, to sell this coming weekend at a local fair, and then to place on my site. I snapped a photo of one to share.
Photos of Santa
Kids for generations have been hoping to snap a photo of Santa in the act, but most often settle for posing for one with Santa at the mall or at a local holiday fair. Well known for their iconic photography and stories that capture important moments in our life, Life magazine put out editions on the subject Santa and what the holiday means to many. I snagged a Life, Christmas Around the World 2004 edition for myself. Within it’s pages it talks about speculation of how our vision of Santa may have been distilled from the artwork and words of Nast and Moore. A jolly plump man in a little red suit bearing gifts.
In my research of gift bearers, I’ve noted that people have many different holiday beliefs and welcome different gift bearers in different places throughout the world.
No matter what you believe in, we can all use a little bit of jollity throughout the year. Welcome Santa
