SANTA CLAUS HAS COME TO TOWN (Christmas Decorating Part 3)

The children of early European settlers believed that St. Nicholas would visit them in their new country just as he had in their homelands.  As a result America’s image of Santa Claus, like America itself, was a blending of many ethnic contributions.  Santa Claus is a beloved part of the holiday season…a spirit of sharing, giving and loving.  


I love this wooden Santa, kneeling to pray beside Baby Jesus in the manger.
