The version of Santa Claus we have today is a result of many years of magic.
It started with Saint Nicholas, a notoriously generous Greek bishop in the early Christian church.
Centuries later, in Victorian England, Father Christmas emerged. He was responsible for bringing the Christmas cheer during the holiday season.
The gift giver in Saint Nicholas and the cheerful character of Father Christmas combine together to form the traits we now know as Santa!
The 1823 beloved poem “The Night Before Christmas” brought Santa to life. The creation of Santa’s trademark look came from American illustrator Thomas Nast in 1863 and was popularized in advertising campaigns by Coca-Cola in the 1930s.
Christmas Magic is everywhere, you just have to know where to look.
Merry Christmas from Bautis Financial!
