Christmas is a time of giving and of bringing joy to others. Today we’re celebrating the origins of the jolly-red-clad-fat man. Santa and all that he embodies can be traced back to the 4th century figure Saint Nicholas who was known for his secret gift giving (you can read his story here).
There are a few versions here, but our favourite of course is the last…Summer Santa – rocking the shorts and yellow shirt. It’s nice to see that even Santa has to relax at some point!
